LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE, CA - We love to see fellow industry members recognized for the great work they do. Nora Trueblood, Marketing and Communications Director for Allen Lund Company, was recently named the recipient of the 3rd annual Allen Lund Legacy Award.
“I was very blessed to be raised in a home where we learned to give back from a very young age. I feel blessed that I was able to come work for the [Allen Lund Company], who have always encouraged giving back in the smallest way, the biggest way, whatever way we can...I am so truly honored that you would bestow this award upon me. Thank you so much,” Nora commented on receiving the award.
According to a release, the Legacy Award was created to honor an Allen Lund Company employee who is deeply involved in service within the community and exemplifies the unique leadership qualities and character of ALC’s beloved Founder, Allen Lund.
Nominations were submitted by ALC employees, reviewed, and the winner selected by the Lund family.
“We would like to say that we were once again inspired to read about ALC's amazing employees.
