For 26 years, the Orange County Citizens Foundation has selected a citizen worthy of receiving the Ottaway Medal. Named in honor of Ruth and James Ottaway, prominent philanthropists and founders of the Times Herald Record. The Ottaway Medal is awarded each year to a citizen who embodies their community leadership and commitment.
Earlier this year, the Citizens Foundation chose an extraordinary citizen to receive the Ottaway Medal, Linda S. Muller, President and CEO of Cornerstone Family Healthcare. She is a lifelong Orange County resident and has served at the helm of Cornerstone with a mission to ensure that every person in our community has access to quality health care. Linda is highly respected and recognized as a leader in the health care field, and has consistently remained committed to improving the health, wellness and quality of life for our region.
Upon announcing the Board’s selection, the community response and support was evident and the event was expected to support the annual fundraising goals vital to the continued viability of a non-profit organization that has been focused on creating quality communities in the Hudson Valley area for nearly 50 years. To maintain state safety guidelines, the event is now scheduled for Thurs., Dec. 3 and will be a virtual event with the exception of a limited number of Linda’s friends, family and staff in attendance at the award ceremony. Ticket holders will receive a to-go dinner and access to view the program online by visiting www.occitizensfoundation.org.
