Patricia Garry nationally recognized for building local communities

Patricia Garry (center) receives the 2016 national award for community development leadership from NACEDA Chair Sharon Legenza and Ohio CDC Association Executive Director Nate Coffman.

Last week, at the 9th Annual National Alliance of Community Economic Development Associations (NACEDA) Annual Summit, held in Cleveland, Patricia Garry, long-time Executive Director of CDC Association of Greater Cincinnati and contributing founder of Ohio CDC Association, won the Diane Sterner Award.

Patricia is very deserving of this award, having dedicated 51 years of service to Cincinnati communities. She is retiring at the end of the year.

This has picked up some press too, via Brittany York of Soapbox Cincinnati:

“According to Nate Coffman, the Ohio CDC Association’s executive director, Garry is incredibly deserving of the national award, which is why he chose to nominate her. “Her leadership has ensured CDCs in Cincinnati  — and throughout Ohio — will continue to improve neighborhoods for the people who live and work there long after she leaves the field,” he says.”

Congratulations, Patricia.
