 It is with great pleasure that the Board of Directors of the Lawrence History Center announces the recipients of the 2018 Eartha Dengler History Award:

Nearly a decade ago, the founders of the Greater Lawrence Young Professionals Network (GLYPN) set out to create something that any city wishing to thrive in the 21st century must have: a lively community of young professionals that is motivated to live, work, and play locally, and looks for ways to invest their time and talents in the city. From hosting networking events and community volunteer efforts to facilitating high school resume workshops and career mentorship nights, GLYPN has increased the level of young professional engagement across the Lawrence community. Its members are playing a vital role in ensuring that Lawrence has the energetic, cultured, skilled, and passionate leaders that the future calls for. And they are helping to ensure that future generations can take as much pride in the history and culture of Lawrence as these young professionals do today.
