Cathy Potter Named Woman of Distinction

Last night, Cathy Potter was honored at the annual Salute to Women event. The Salute to Women program honors women who have excelled in their work, community and family. Honorees are leaders, role models and mentors who have had a tremendous positive impact on the lives of the citizens of our community.

Cathy Potter served on the Lafayette Urban Ministry Board of Directors for nine years from 2005 through 2013 representing St. Andrew United Methodist Church. She served in various leadership positions on the board and was elected President in 2013.

Cathy’s service at LUM was marked by collaboration, consensus building, a good listening ear and a great ability to bring people together to advance the Mission of LUM. This was no small task given the fact that the LUM board is comprised of 44 directors!

She was instrumental in the planning and development of the first-ever LUM Good Samaritan Fund Follies fundraising event and along with her many board responsibilities has a special love for LUM Jubilee Christmas and LUM Camp. Cathy’s presence is felt everyday at LUM and her spirit and vision are evident in many caring and compassionate ways LUM serves at-risk children and working families in our community.
