On February 20, 2014, the Independent magazine and NonProfit
Connect named Elizabeth S. (“Betsy”) Lynch as their 2014 Rising Star!  The
criteria for obtaining the award include a solid record of volunteer service in
a variety of organizations in the nonprofit sector as well as leadership in
philanthropy and volunteerism in new and creative ways.  Betsy exhibits
those qualities by serving on the Boards of Directors for the Junior League of
Kansas City, Missouri, the Kansas City Bankruptcy Bar Association, the
Association for Women Lawyers of Greater Kansas City, and the Young Lawyers
Council of the Missouri Bar Association.  She has volunteered in a number
of capacities with additional organizations such as Harvesters, Happy Bottoms,
the Volunteer Attorney Project, and many, many more.  Betsy says, “I am
humbled and honored to be recognized for the work I’ve done.  I am most
proud of the accomplishments achieved by the Junior League of Kansas City, Missouri, who was nice enough to nominate me for the award.  As a member of numerous bar organizations, I am happy to be a
part of such a giving Kansas City legal community.  It’s nice to know that
Nonprofit Connect recognizes the dedication all of these organizations, not
just me, make to improving Kansas City.”
 
Betsy will be honored at the 30th Annual Philanthropy Awards Luncheon on May 7th in downtown Kansas City.  To purchase tickets to the luncheon please visit: http://www.kcindependent.com/event/30th-annual-philanthropy-awards-luncheon/
