2020 Winner

Ruth Puls

Ruth Puls has served in various capacities at the Archdiocese of Baltimore over her tenure there. Most recently--and the reason for which she received this award--she served on the executive committee and as the key contact for the Mid-Atlantic Congress (MAC. Her service on the MAC began at the start when she was co-chair of the program committee, and her involvement in the development and implementation of the program aspects of the plan have driven the excellence of the keynotes and general sessions to be the experiences that the MAC participants have come to expect.
