Frequently Asked Questions


2023 Wayne B. Smith 'Leading with Kindness' Awards

The annual honor is bestowed upon outstanding individuals, groups, businesses, and organizations whose gifts of time, talent, or treasure throughout the previous year have benefited older adults throughout Kentucky.

Annual award winners exemplify Pastor Wayne's 'leading with kindness' first mentality. Pastor Wayne was the first senior minister at Southland Christian Church and was one of the founders of Sayre Christian Village. He is fondly remembered for his laughter and kindness and for never turning away a stranger in need. Wayne looked for the good in all people.

Last year’s 2022 Wayne B. Smith Award honorees were: Greg Horn, Lead Minister at Gardenside Christian Church and the “Hope is Here” podcast, Barbara Burton (volunteer that has baptized over 700 inmates in the Jessamine County Detention Center), and Brewster McLeod of McLeod’s Coffee House (a nonprofit that employs ‘differently-abled’ individuals).

Nominations are NOW OPEN for the 2023 Wayne B. Smith 'Leading with Kindness' Awards. The awards will take place on October 24th at 9 am at Friendship Towers. Nominate someone worthy today!
