Kentuckian Nationally Recognized for Public Service, McConnell Congratulates Awardee from Morgantown
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell welcomed Christine Porter Coleman of Morgantown, Kentucky, to his office to personally congratulate her upon winning the 2014 Jefferson Award, which is presented to exceptional Americans who strive to make their communities better and stronger. Award recipients are nominated from throughout the country and travel to Washington, D.C. to accept the awards.
Mrs. Coleman was nationally recognized for being an active member of her community for many years. She served as the Butler Circuit Court Clerk in 1970 and currently serves on multiple boards of non-profit organizations. She also established two residential substance abuse treatment centers in Butler County, Andrea’s Mission for Women and Andrea’s Mission for Men. Her efforts have reconnected numerous children with their once addicted parents.
“Christine’s service to her community is very impressive and I was honored to present her with the distinguished Jefferson Award,” Senator McConnell said.
In addition to her outstanding leadership in her community service endeavors, Christine founded the Green River Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution and established a Children of the American Revolution chapter in Morgantown.
