"Ann Young, general counsel for Mission Health System, won the chamber's Athena Award, given to a woman who personifies professional excellence. Young, who has worked for Mission since 1981, helped implement a program that gives patients with pressing legal needs access to the local nonprofit Pisgah Legal Services. She's also volunteered with organizations such as the YMCA and United Way of Asheville-Buncombe County." taken from the Asheville Citizen-Times article
Ann has been an incredible friend to us at United Way for over twenty years and we particularly appreciate her leadership as Board Chair for the last two. There's no way to calculate all she has done for our community but we hope that this award comes close to acknowledging it in the way she deserves. Congratulations Ann!
