“I have really enjoyed my six years here and I think that this commission and this port is very under appreciated. We are an economic driver and we have a lot to be proud of,” Commissioner Waldron said during Thursday’s Board Meeting.

Waldron spearheaded several community projects while serving on the Port Commission. 

She facilitated the COVID-19 drive through food events that were held at the Port for just over one year. She co-founded Palm Beach County Cares to help collect donations for victims of Hurricane Maria and Hurricane Dorian. The group also provided post-earthquake aid to Haiti. 

“Any time there was a natural disaster Katherine always took the lead. Her more than anyone I have ever seen. For that alone I express my gratitude,” said Board Chairman Blair Ciklin.
