This year’s Sheila Keeble Award recipient has not yet been announced. The annual award is given to honor a woman who has made a difference in the recovery community. Past recipients include Janice Lavvorn, Cindy Caudle, Leslie Dabrowiak, Lake Eakin, Elizabeth Fox, Stephanie Ingram, Genie Laurent and Eleanor Templeton. All were honored at the women’s luncheons of the past.
Keynote speaker Tara Conner was crowned Miss Teen USA in 2006. In December of that year she entered treatment for alcohol and drug addiction. Now a person in long term recovery, Tara speaks out to encourage others to seek treatment and find their path to sobriety.
“It’s so important to understand that addiction is a family disease,” said Conner. “I experienced this first-hand within my own family. But I’ve also learned that through treatment and recovery you can break the cycle.”
“At Cumberland Heights we appreciate the support from our many generous donors and sponsors to enhance programs to help women seeking recovery from alcohol and drug addiction,” said Martha Farabee, chief development and marketing officer at Cumberland Heights. “The luncheon would not be possible without the group of benefactors and committee members who make it a successful anticipated event every year. We are very excited to have inspirational speaker Tara Conner join us as our special guest for 2019. I know the attendees will come away from the luncheon not only entertained but inspired and moved by her story.”
