Every year, the Corpsmember of the Year Award is presented to five exceptional Corpsmembers who have exhibited outstanding leadership skills and demonstrated an earnest commitment to service and civic engagement. All winners of the Corpsmember of the Year Award were nominated by their Corps and selected by a panel consisting of representatives from The Corps Network’s staff and Board of Directors, as well as an unbiased group of staff from member Corps of The Corps Network. MCC is proud that one of our very own, Katheryne Lewis, was awarded the honor of 2016 Corpsmember of the Year.

Katheryne developed an interest in the outdoors through a backpacking trip in college. Wanting to connect with nature on a deeper level, she joined the Vermont Youth Conservation Corps and later enrolled in the leadership program at Montana Conservation Corps. Katheryne proved to be an exceptional leader and role model, challenging her crews to open their minds to new points of view. Her goal is to see more women and people of color in the conservation field.
