The Spirit Award

Established in 2001, The Spirit Award honors the memory of beloved member, Marilynn Daugherty.  

Marilynn Daugherty (1948-2001) was a dedicated mentor, businesswoman, confidant, advisor, peer and friend to countless members of the Credit and Financial Development Division and the National Association of Credit Management. 

She was the consummate professional and offered many individuals a helping hand to grow and reach their fullest potential, both professionally and personally.  Her unquenchable Spirit touched the lives and careers of so many people at all levels of the business credit and financial communities.

Marilynn was a sound guide, but not critical judge, of those who worked for her and beside her.  Her Spirit encompassed those around her like a pair of safe, yet strong and protective arms.  Marilynn’s years of service to CFDD as a Member, Director, Officer, and Chairman of the Board were marked by unbridled compassion, dedication, fairness, graciousness, and loyalty.  These attributes were not limited solely to the CFDD but shared generously with all those with whom she came in contact.

The Spirit Award is bestowed only when Awards Committee feels an individual merits such an honor.
