A Very Special Honor is Awarded To One of WRHS’s Own
Congratulations to our Unit member Kathleen Gips, on being awarded the 2021 Madeline Hill Award for Excellence in Herbal Education from The Herb Society of America!
This award is to honor those who have a passion for promoting the knowledge, use and delight of herbs through educational activities at any level. The recipient must be living at the time of the nomination and can be either a professional or non-professional, but must show a great zeal for sharing their passion for herbs with the public.
Kathleen was nominated by many in our Unit as well as those she has touched throughout her lifetime as an educator about herbs. She says, “Educating about herbs has been my lifelong passion. To teach about herbs is my joy, my love, my calling. It is both my passion and my pleasure. To be recognized for what I love to do is pure joy.”
