School honors Midway Woman’s Club for long history of service to community

At its fourth annual Day for Midway celebration on October 10, Midway University presented its Community Spirit Award to the Midway Woman’s Club in recognition of its nearly 100 years of service to Woodford County.

Established in 1922, the Club has been a stalwart of volunteerism in its community, regularly contributing to events large and small and providing support to countless worthy causes. Over the years it has backed many efforts and organizations in Midway and Woodford County including the Midway Free Public Library, Midway Cemetery Fund/Veterans Memorial, Coats for Kids, Northside Elementary School, Woodford County High School, Francisco’s Farm Arts Festival, the Midway Fall Festival, Kids Voting and the Ruth Slack Roach Scholarship at Midway University. The Club also annually awards a scholarship to a Woodford County High School student.

“There is no other place like Midway and we’re fortunate to have neighbors and community partners like the Midway Woman’s Club that are invested in our town and its possibilities,” said Dr. John P. Marsden, President, Midway University. “We are pleased to be able to honor this worthy group and their giving spirit.”

The Community Spirit Award is presented during Midway University’s annual Day for Midway celebration, held each fall to celebrate the long-standing relationship between the institution and Woodford County.
