Carol Waller was presented with the Mary Turner Lane Award by Karen Blilie.
The Arapahoe County Republican party’s prestigious Mary Lane Award is presented annually to recognize an outstanding volunteer for his or her contributions to Republican candidates, organizations and activities. The award recognizes the unsung volunteer who says “yes” to volunteer opportunities, time after time, year after year.
The Mary Turner Lane Award was established by William Lane in memory of his late wife Mary for her longtime volunteer involvement and commitment to the Arapahoe County Republican party. She served as past president of Cherry Creek Republican Women and was president of the Colorado Federation of Republican Women at the time of her death.
Carol Waller, the 2018 recipient of the Mary Turner Lane Award, has volunteered for the Arapahoe County Republican party and for the community for many years. She utilized her banking background by serving on the investment committee of her children’s school, Regis Jesuit High School. She has served as a precinct leader, district captain, and officer of Cherry Creek Republican Women. She has been a vital part of Cherry Creek Republican Women’s activities and fundraisers, participating in and hosting fundraisers for candidates, volunteering in TAPS, a military support group, assisting with the Arapahoe County Lincoln Day dinner and special county GOP projects. She is presently serving as an Arapahoe County co-chair for 18th Judicial District Attorney George Brauchler’s campaign for Colorado Attorney General.
The 2017 recipient of the award, former Greenwood Village City Council member Karen Blilie, presented the award to Waller at the Arapahoe County Republican assembly March 24. Previous Mary Turner Lane Award recipients include Polly Page, Renee Welsh, Marty Bolt, Mort Marks, Mary Wenke, Bob Miles, Bill Banta, Debbie Brown, Laurett Barrentine and Andi Allott.
