Each year, DVSAS presents the Kathleen Marshall Award to an individual who has made an impact in addressing domestic violence and/or sexual assault through their personal or professional endeavors. The award is given in memory of Kathleen Marshall, the DVSAS Executive Director from 1996 to 2007, who devoted her life to helping survivors of violence.
Nomination Process: The Kathleen Marshall Award will be awarded to an outstanding individual who has made significant contributions in addressing the problem of domestic violence and/or sexual assault in Whatcom County. The recipient will have performed above and beyond their expectations and can be a community member employed in any field, including social services, legal, law enforcement, medical, or education. Nominees may not be directly affiliated with DVSAS as a current staff member, board member, or volunteer. Deadline for nominations is Friday, March 31, 2017.
