Jean McKenzie Woman of the Year Award Nominations

Jean McKenzie was a former Life Member of Soroptimist International of La Grande and a long-time community leader.  She loved SILG, promoting education and scholarships, and especially the club’s social events. Born and raised in the La Grande area, she strived to have an impact locally by becoming a teacher, then immersing herself in civic life.  McKenzie Theatre was named after Jean and her husband, Glen.

The Jean McKenzie Award was established in 1993 to honor her memory and recognize an SILG member who makes a difference in Union County, cares about our area and our local club contributions, while helping others beyond the club and demonstrating community involvement.

Although this club year has looked considerably different for us, we are asking club members to consider recognizing a fellow member described by the above statements.  Please submit nominations by May 21st to Rebecca Loman using this form: Jean McKenzie nomination form 2021
