Louellen S. Coker and Kristy Nolan were awarded the Distinguished Chapter Service Award (DCSA) at the March 13 meeting of the Lone Star Community (LSC) of the Society for Technical Communication (STC).
Ms. Coker is the owner of Content Solutions in Denton, TX, a certified Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE), and is a past president (2005-2006) of the Lone Star Community. She is also a member of the Contracting and Independent Consulting, Lone Writers, and Marketing Special Interest Groups of STC. Ms. Coker was cited for her “exceptional leadership as Lone Star Community president” and her encouragement and support as a mentor in the profession.
Ms. Nolan is a training and publications developer for Southwest Airlines. Ms. Nolan served as an officer and volunteer for various programs in the LSC. She returned to her hometown of Cleveland, OH, last fall, but had returned to Dallas on business for Southwest Airlines and was able to attend the LSC meeting where her award was presented. She was cited for sustained contributions to the Lone Star Community and for her “experience, continuing dedication, hard work, and enthusiasm.”
“I’m extremely pleased that we can award the Distinguished Chapter Service Award to these two women,” said Mel Haughton, immediate past president of the LSC and chairman of the DCSA nominating committee. “Over the past few years, they have given a lot of their time to the LSC, and they have truly made a difference in the organization.”
The Distinguished Chapter Service Award recognizes exemplary dedication to a chapter and its activities. The program was inaugurated in 1988 and the first awards were given in 1989.
