Patricia L. Kanan Award for Outstanding Service

In 2008 the Charitable Trust Board of Trustees established the “Patricia L. Kanan Award for Outstanding Service”.  This award named for our most generous and dedicated benefactor to date is presented as a way to acknowledge individuals who have provided outstanding service and/or contribution to our cause.  At the Trustees discretion this award may be presented to one or more individuals at the Charitable Trust Banquet held at the conclusion of our National Specialty.

On April 16, 2015 the eighth “Patricia L. Kanan Award for Outstanding Service” was presented to  Luanne Dunham longtime supporter of the ACKCSC and Charitable Trust Trustee.

Working behind the scenes tirelessly making what needs to happen, happen and helping our club move forward is what she does best.  If you have ever attended a National Specialty you probably know who she is; the rest of you have likely communicated with her via email, telephone or snail mail.  As the corresponding secretary of the ACKCSC her name is known to every club member. 

Her role within the club is well known, but her work for the Charitable Trust is known to few. She prefers to have the spotlight shine on anyone besides herself. If you ask her what she does for the Charitable Trust she will likely respond, “All I do is drive the truck.”
