[May 15, 2012]  As a local obstetrician, Dr. Kristin Green-Morrow knows a little bit about adding life to a community. Yet, her caring heart and generous spirit extend beyond the delivery room. To recognize all of her contributions, Lincoln Christian University presented her the Community Leadership Award on Friday.

In presenting the award, LCU President Keith H. Ray said: "Medical doctors are incredibly busy people. And babies, in particular, have a knack for not complying with anyone's schedule. Those two factors alone make Kristin's list of community involvement almost mind-boggling."

Green-Morrow has served as a member and past president on the boards of directors for Main Street Lincoln and the Lincoln & Logan County Development Partnership. Additionally, she has served as president of Lincoln Pastoral Counseling Services and as a member of the Zonta Club of Lincoln.

As an active member of the Lincoln Rotary, she has served as the director of international service, has been recognized for her contributions to the Rotary International Foundation by being named a Paul Harris Fellow multiple times, and in 2009-10, she was named the Lincoln club's Rotarian of the Year.

The LCU president pointed out: "At a time when some doctors limit the numbers and types of patients they will see, Dr. Green-Morrow turns no one down. She is very much a rescuer for young women and young families facing difficult situations."

Green-Morrow's generosity has been felt on the LCU campus as well, in a variety of ways. She has been a faithful supporter of the annual "Run for Your Life" two-mile campus run. She endowed the Dr. Thomas G. and Jan S. Ewald Scholarship and was the lead donor to the Henry and Ida Johnson Scholarship for the Promotion of Diversity in the Seminary.

Green-Morrow is the mother of two children and a member of Jefferson Street Christian Church, where she has helped with Vacation Bible School. She has also taken two medical missionary trips to Thailand with a mission team from the Atlanta Christian Church.

And, if you think all that isn't enough to keep her busy, she is a student at Lincoln Christian Seminary and teaches in the School of Undergraduate Studies.

Lincoln and Logan County are blessed to have this fine and generous doctor so committed to the community she serves.
