Support the Marybeth McAlister Staff Award Fund

Marybeth McAlister, long-time Director of Communications for UK CAER, personified staff excellence in all she did. The Center will honor Marybeth's legacy with a new recognition program – the Marybeth McAlister Outstanding Staff Award.

There are so many superlatives that describe Marybeth – wordsmith, communicator, gentle taskmaster, herder of cats, friend. If forced to choose just one word, it would have to be passion – her passion for work, for her family, for friends, for laughter, or for food.

Through her selfless spirit, empathy, attention to detail, and kind disposition, we at the center knew that Marybeth was someone we could always count on – no matter the situation.
