LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — A well-known volunteer in Greater Lafayette was honored for her years of service, Thursday.  Several people celebrated Sally Watlington at Riggs Community Health Center.

Watlington helped raise the $3.4 million needed to open Riggs in 1998. She was a captain in the navy for 23 years and served as president of the YWCA board in 1990.

She said her efforts to help the community won't stop anytime soon. Watlington has been on the board of Franciscan health Western Indiana since 2008.

"I did four years as president of that board and I'm still on that board and chair two committees and serve on a third one so I'm staying busy in the health care business," said Watlington. 

A proclamation to honor Watlington was also read by State Representative Sheila Klinker.
