Sally Woodall has been recognized by the Mid Shore Community Mediation Center as 2021 Volunteer of the Year. The Center promotes peaceful resolution of conflict with collaborative problem-solving resources in Dorchester, Caroline, and Talbot Counties. This award is given to the person who shows dedication in helping others resolve conflicts and demonstrates a broad commitment to the Center. Sally was presented her award by Center Executive Director, Jennifer Williams, and Volunteer Coordinator, Jessica Basom at the recent MSCMC Volunteer Recognition Picnic.
Sally has volunteered with Mid Shore Community Mediation Center since 2013. A long time contributor, Sally has especially demonstrated her commitment this year by participating in 20 mediation sessions. This is a significant accomplishment given that this was done in the context of the COVID19 pandemic. It required learning new skills and techniques to deliver a quality mediation in the virtual environment. In addition to providing skilled mediations, Sally has a history of involvement in many outreach programs. She is a member of the Volunteer Engagement Committee and provides strong mentorship to new mediators. Because of Sally’s commitment to providing a high quality process, she is one of the most highly trained volunteers supporting the Center.
If you ever had the chance to see Sally in action, you know that she builds an atmosphere of trust with her humility and acceptance of others. This creates a safe environment where dialogue can occur among the parties to explore possible solutions and work toward developing a mutually acceptable solution. Mid Shore Community Mediation Center is privileged to have Sally Woodall’s support and is happy to bestow this well deserved recognition on her.
