Martha B. Taft Award Winners

Our Highest Honor

The Martha B. Taft Award is named after our first president, who served from 1920-22 and again in 1932-34. We honor her example of leadership by presenting our highest award to a League member in her name.

The criteria are simple: be a long-time member of the League; be a contributor to the League; and be a leader in the general community.

These are the women and men who have made a commitment to the League, and endeavored to follow Ms. Taft's example.
