Nominations open – Kim Moore Visionary Leadership Award

In 2017, the United Methodist Health Ministry Fund Board of Directors voted to honor the organization’s founding president with the establishment of the Kim Moore Award for Visionary Leadership. Each year, the Fund solicits nominations in a chosen strategic field of work and honors one individual whose leadership has had a positive effect on the health of a specific group of persons. For 2022, the Health Fund is inviting nominations for a leader who has previously or is currently serving in the strategic area of early childhood development in Kansas.

The winner of the award will be honored at a ceremony in May 2023. The individual will receive a cash award of $500, and if associated with an organization, that agency will receive an additional $2,000 to use as it deems.

Please direct any questions about this award to Katie Schoenhoff, Director of Programs. To nominate a candidate, please complete the online form below or include the same information in an email or letter to Katie (katie@healthfund.org / United Methodist Health Ministry Fund, PO Box 1384, Hutchinson, KS 67504-1384).

Nominations need to be received in the Health Fund office by November 11. Staff will review nominations for final selection by Board vote in late November. If you previously nominated an individual who was not selected for the award, they may be renominated.
