Judie Hammerstad Receives Lifetime Achievement Award

Excerpt from an article in The Lake Oswego Review, March 22, 2012.

Lake Oswego's most outstanding leaders were honored at the 2012 Lake Oswego Chamber of Commerce Awards Dinner & Auction.

Judie Hammerstad, former mayor of Lake Oswego, received the Bob Bigelow Lifetime Achievement Award.

"Mayor Judie" served as Lake Oswego's mayor from 2001 through the end of 2008, but she has served the community in many capacities — school board member, Oregon state representative, Clackamas County commissioner and Marylhurst University Board of Trustees member.

Hammerstad has received several prestigious honors for her service, including the Lake Oswego Community Leader of the Year, Lake Oswego Rotary Vocational Service Award and Clackamas Chamber of Commerce President's Award.

Bill Korach, superintendent of the Lake Oswego School District, had high praise for Hammerstad when she was presented the latest honor, calling her "a very special person."

Korach said, "Judie certainly knows about the joys and challenges of being a community leader — taking initiative, being accountable, caring deeply, giving back. She is a great example of the passion, heart, commitment and assertive spirit that it takes to be an outstanding leader in public service."

Korach praised Hammerstad for her visionary passion, steadfast integrity, deep commitment and value-driven leadership, and for fully exemplifying the example of the late Bob Bigelow, a former publisher of the Lake Oswego Review, for whom the award was named.
