About the Kitty P. Smith Award
The Kitty P. Smith Award was established by Citizens for Fauquier County to honor outstanding conservationists who have contributed greatly to preserving the county’s rural landscape, historical resources and agricultural economy.
For more than 20 years, Dr. Smith, a long-term Fauquier resident, set the standard for advocating wise land conservation. She served as a board member of CFFC and Goose Creek Association, staff member of the Piedmont Environmental Council and was a hands-on participant with numerous civic organizations. Her influence was also felt on the Fauquier County Agricultural and Forestal District Committee and Capital Improvements Committee.
