"It's what you do that counts."
Our 'Violet Richardson Award' named after Violet Richardson, the president of the first Soroptimist club in Alameda County in 1921. Ms. Richardson believed in personal responsibility and the motto, “It's what you do that counts.”
She lived her life accordingly, as an active member in her community who was committed to creating opportunities for girls and young women. Soroptimist Intl established this award to honor the memory of this unique woman and her dedication to volunteer action.
The Soroptimist of Havre de Grace, MD continues the tradition to award the annual Violet Richardson Award to a Harford or Cecil County, MD young women between the ages of 14 - 18 whom demonstrated exceptional community outreach in her community service, volunteerism and leadership qualities.
Application submission deadline is: 15 March 2022
