The event is a celebration of Maryhurst’s work with the abused and neglected children in its care, as well as a day of recognition for the non-profit’s generous supporters and the accomplishments of its alumnae.
The 2013 Alumna of the Year is Licia Priest, who arrived at Maryhurst at the age 14. Since that time, Licia has excelle...d as a fine artist with concentrations in painting on glass, sculptural paintings constructed with wood, and clothing design. Her work has been exhibited at the University of Louisville, J.B Speed Museum, McCauley Theatre, and numerous galleries around the country. Her collections can also be seen at the University of Louisville, Brown-Forman Corporation, PNC Bank and Images Gallery. She has won several awards including a Kentucky Foundation for Women Grant in 2000 for her Study in Mosaics; a Professional Assistance Award
by Kentucky Arts Council in 1995; and a Kentucky Foundation for Women Grant in 1988 for her Fiber Arts Studies. Licia volunteers to teach art to youth, pre-K through 12th grade, and her training in American Sign Language allows her to provide assistance to deaf and hard of hearing individuals. She is also a spiritual counselor who leads group and individual Bible studies at Louisville Metro Corrections. Licia is a wonderful example of what Maryhurst hopes for all its residents - overcoming life’s challenges and not only becoming a successful individual, but also paying it forward by helping others in need.
“We are excited to honor Licia as the Alumna of the Year at the 2013 Journey of Hope Luncheon,” said Judy Lambeth, President and CEO. “This is a wonderful event for us as it provides the opportunity to share the success stories of our children, as well as helps us raise the funds necessary to continue to provide the quality care Maryhurst is known for.”
Maryhurst is thrilled to have a $15,000 Diamond Level Sponsorship by the Brown-Forman Corporation and a $10,000 Platinum Level Sponsorship by the Sisters of the Good Shepherd for the 2013 Journey of Hope Luncheon. With out these sponsorships and the many other corporate and community sponsors and partners, Maryhurst would be unable to provide the care it offers to
so more than 30 children each year.
