Katherine Cerino Award


The AAHS Board of Directors annually may present one or more Katherine Cerino Awards.  This award is named in honor of Katherine Cerino, an extraordinary volunteer who has given innumerable hours to the Society over many years in a variety of roles. She has worked tirelessly to chair the Library Committee and as a member and chair of the Research and Travel Grants Committee.  She fulfilled the role of Vice President for Activities for ten years, led the field trip committee for 15 years, set up AAHS email and social media and she worked on the design of the AAHS website and managed the website for many years. Volunteers like Katherine are a rarity and this award is given to others in honor in recognition of their hard work supporting the Society.  The award recognizes people who have volunteered their services to AAHS or made other contributions on behalf of the Society and its programs for at least the previous two years.
