Heather Pool awards
19th Annual Mary Good Humanitarian Award Presented to Heather Pool
Heather Pool, teacher for Lancaster City Preschools, received the 19th annual Mary Good Humanitarian Award. She was nominated by Brenda Zeiders and Sandra Herzog from Lancaster City Schools who were mentored by Mary Good early in their careers. The presentation was featured during United Way’s Awards Recognition Event on April 1.

The Fairfield County FACF Council along with United Way created this award as a tribute to Mary Good for her exceptional service to the community on behalf of children and families. Mary was a teacher with the Lancaster City Schools, Christian educator at St. Bernadette Catholic Church, park leader with the United Way Summer Park program in Pleasantville, Peace School coordinator, social worker, and scout leader. This annual award has honored Mary’s memory since 2003 by recognizing a special person who exemplifies her compassion and daily devotion to the cause of nurturing and protecting children and families.

Thank you, Heather, for your dedication to families and children, and congratulations on receiving this well-deserved recognition!
