Every year since 2008, the Loudoun Laurels Foundation recognizes the contributions of Loudoun County citizens by naming them Laureates at an annual gala at Lansdowne Resort in Leesburg.

For this year’s event on Sept. 30, Sandy Lerner, co-founder of Cisco Systems and owner of Ayrshire Farm in Upperville, has been selected as the honoree. Lerner sat down with the Times-Mirror earlier this week to talk about her work in Loudoun County and what it means to be recognized for her service.
