League of Women Voters presents Beatty Award
At their Annual Meeting on Saturday, June 6, the LWV of Claremont Area gave their Caroline Beatty Award to Barbara Rugeley, an exceptionally deserving candidate for this award. She is a hard-working League member whose exemplary service is reminiscent of Caroline’s dedicated and tireless work in the past.
Ms. Rugeley was Librarian at Citrus College until her recent retirement. As a member of League she has served as Secretary, Director of Units, and continues as Leader of our Observer Corps. In this position she has breathed “new life” in this process as she recruits observers, coaches them on their role, and serves as liaison between the observers and the organizations they watch. Recently she was one of our delegates to the LWV State Convention. She has served on several LWV committees: Nominating, Membership, Budget and Voter Service Committees.
Besides all this, Ms. Rugeley is an active member and sometimes officer of other local organizations. Among them are: Friends of International Students, Friends of the Library, Kiwanis Club. She shares her excellent story-telling skills with many and is a member of the Inland Valley Story Tellers. Last, but not least, she shares her delicious homemade cookies generously.
League thanked her for her creativity, thoughtfulness, and hard work with a gift of flowers and an engraved plaque.
