The Linda and Henry Smith President's Award was created in 2011 to honor the memory of one of Kentucky’s finest Lions couple. PID Henry and PDG Linda Smith were active volunteers with KLEF and were instrumental in many KLEF initiatives.
The award is presented each year during the MD43 State Convention by the current KLEF President to an individual who has been instrumental in helping during that President's term, just as Linda and Henry were to KLEF and always so willing to help.
