Award

or the second year in a row, a husband
and wife team captured the Sidney
D. Kline, Jr. Award for Outstanding
Community Service.
Michael and Diane Duff received the
award from the Law Foundation of Berks
County during the Annual Holiday Benefit
Luncheon on December 6.

The Foundation established the award six
years ago to honor Sid Kline's unparalleled
legacy of civic engagement. The award
recognizes those who carry on Sid's legacy
through their tireless work to lift up their
neighbors in need and strengthen our
community.

While unquestionably a tremendous
team, Michael and Diane also contribute
individually to several non-profit
organizations.

Diane, a University of Maryland
graduate, has been an outstanding advocate
for victims of abuse and violence in her role
as Secretary of the Board of Directors at
Safe Berks and Chair of the organization's
Development Committee.

Michael and Diane Duff have shared not
only the same address for the past 35 years of marriage, but also a
passion for community involvement.

Michael, who graduated from Johns
Hopkins University and earned his law
degree from the University of Baltimore
School of Law, is the current President
of the Reading Symphony Orchestra
Board of Directors and Secretary of the
Greater Reading Chamber and Economic
Development Corporation Board of Directors.

They currently serve as co-chairs of Caron's Central
Pennsylvania Advisory Council.

Michael is the Senior Vice President-Government Relations
and Chief Compliance Officer for Penske Transportation
Solutions and has been a Penske team member since 1991.

Michael and Diane were co-chairs of the United Way of Berks
County's 2011 Campaign; the United Way's Tocqueville Society
Cabinet; the Berks Deanery for the 2012 Bishop's Annual Appeal;
and the 2015 Safe Berks Celebration of Peace.

He's also vice-chair of the Board at The John Paul II Center
for Special Learning and Penn State Health St. Joseph Medical
Center.

Their charitable work earned Michael and Diane the United
Way's highest volunteer award - the Wilbur H. Doran Award
in 2018. And earlier this year, the John Paul II Center for Special
Learning bestowed the "Halo Award" to Michael and Diane at the
school's 9th Annual Legacy Gala.

Michael and Diane reside in Lower Heidelberg Township
where they raised their sons, Alexander and Steven.

The life they share is lived in a manner best described in the
words of Saint Teresa of Calcutta: "Let no one ever come to you
without leaving better and happier."

Diane Duff talks about the importance of community
service during the Law Foundation of Berks
County's annual Holiday Benefit Luncheon.
