Sally EvermanThe recipient of the 2015 Vic Hellard Jr. Award, which honors a current LRC worker, is Sally Everman. In her work as a supervisor of the LRC Project Center, Sally is recognized as an irreplaceable link between legislators, LRC staff and citizens from around the Commonwealth. According to her nominating letter, “Sally is the bright spot in many people’s day at LRC with a long line of legislators, staff, lobbyists and executive branch agency personnel often stopping into her office just to say hi.” Sally, through her more than 25 years of service, continues to prove herself to be an irreplaceable link between legislators, LRC staff and citizens from around the Commonwealth. Along with coordinating constituent surveys that help lawmakers gauge opinions and shape policy, Sally has taken on leadership roles that connect the Capitol to Kentuckians both young and old. For several years, she was one of the chief organizers of the Special Advisory Commission of Senior Citizens, helping coordinate the group’s annual two-day gathering at the Capitol which provided lawmakers with input on senior issues. She has also served in various managing roles for the National Conference of State Legislatures, America’s Legislators Back to School Program since its inception, helping educate schoolchildren about the legislative process. She does it all with grace. “We dare say that one would be challenged to identify an LRC staff person who has done more to boost the public’s appreciation for and confidence in LRC staff than Sally Everman,” reads her nominating letter.
