Anne McDonald, Executive Director of the Kansas Lawyers Assistance Program (KALAP), was awarded this year’s Chief Justice Kay McFarland Award presented by the Women Attorneys Association.
The Award “recognizes an individual who has achieved professional excellence in her field and has influenced other women to pursue legal careers, opened doors for women lawyers in a variety of job settings that historically were closed to them, or advanced opportunities for women within a practice area or segment of the profession.”
KALAP was created by the Kansas Supreme Court to assist to Kansas lawyers facing mental health and substance use disorders. Anne has been the Executive Director of KALAP since 2009.
Congratulations, Anne. This recognition is well-deserved.
