The California Society of Municipal Analysts awarded Jennifer Johnston, a vice president and research analyst with Franklin Templeton, with its inaugural Amy S. Doppelt Award for Meritorious Service. Johnston, who considered Doppelt a mentor, said receiving an award "named for such an amazing woman is an incredible honor, especially since I knew her, and she meant so much to me."

Doppelt, a Fitch Ratings analyst who died last fall after a two-year battle with cancer, received a posthumous award from the National Federation of Municipal Analysts in March. The NFMA cited her professional manner, her willingness to teach and her dedication to ethical conduct.
