The Winston-Salem Foundation Award - 1997

Florence Corpening

For her openness to seek challenges as a welcome part of life;

For her determination to reverse a troubled organization;

For her acceptance of people of all abilities and her commitment to serving them;

And especially for her vision turned reality: that the YWCA could offer a unique
opportunity to invite nontraditional clients to interact with mainline members, to
participate in fitness programs, and to benefit from all activities.
