Announcing the 2023 Kate Award Winners!!

2023 First Place, Autumn Patton


No Limits Eastern Shore Brain Injury Services is excited to announce the 2023 winners of the Kathleen W. Richardson Citizenship Award! These awards honor the late Kate Richardson who was a founding member of No Limits and an active volunteer in the community. The awards were originally funded by Kate’s surviving brothers.

We are proud to recognize another great group of young people this year for their contributions to our community and we are very happy that we were able to increase award amounts and add Certificate of Merit winners this year due to the generosity of the C.D. Fleming, Jr. Charitable Foundation. Applications are judged and winners are determined by the brain injury survivors at No Limits.

2023 Honorable Mention, I’Ta’Nashia Jackson

Winners, we will be mailing your check and award to the address you provided. This year’s First Place winner will receive $500 and a plaque, the Honorable Mention winner will receive $250 and a plaque, and the Certificate of Merit honorees will each receive $50 and a certificate. Our Kate Awards page on our website will be updated by 5/1/23 with 2023 winner information.

Once again this year, the terrific local small business High Tide Fabrications has created our plaques for the First Place and Honorable Mention winners and they look amazing!
