The Friends of the McLean Community Center has named Mary Anne Hampton, one of two original staff members hired when the McLean Community Center opened in 1975, the recipient of its 2015 Friend in Deed award. Hampton is the 23rd person to receive this recognition “with gratitude for outstanding leadership and support of the McLean Community Center.”
Hampton was honored at the Friends annual meeting on Monday, June 8, and her name will be added to the “Friend in Deed” plaque located in the Center’s main lobby, which lists all award recipients. She served in various positions during her 33-year tenure. Since her retirement, she has volunteered for numerous Center activities and became a member of the Friends board in 2013.
“Mary Anne is the ‘go to’ Board member of the Friends of the McLean Community Center. When there is a project or a problem, Mary Anne gets it solved and done,” said Glenn Yarborough, president of the Friends’ board of trustees. “Her thoughtful advice and reliability means so much to those on the Friends Board. No one is better, and she is most deserving of this award.” For more information, visit friendsmcc.com or call 703-790-0123.
