Deputy County Executive Verdia Haywood Receives Human Services Award; County Honored by ICMA
Human Services Award
Fairfax County Deputy County Executive Verdia Haywood has been named the Individual Who Has Done the Most to Promote Human Services in Northern Virginia by the Human Services Coalition of Northern Virginia. Haywood was honored at a luncheon on Oct. 18.
The Human Services Coalition of Northern Virginia brings together the chief executive officers of numerous nonprofit organizations that provide human services to the residents of the cities of Alexandria, Fairfax, Falls Church, Manassas and Manassas Park, and the counties of Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William.
“I am both honored and humbled by this award,” said Haywood. “It takes all of us coming together – local governments, community-based nonprofits, the private sector, the community itself – to address and resolve challenges faced by our neighbors living in our communities. The Human Services Coalition of Northern Virginia helps provide critical coordination, collaboration, leadership and inspiration to all of us.”
County officials also were notified last month by the International City/County Management Association, or ICMA, that Fairfax County earned that organization’s highest performance measurement award, the Certificate of Distinction. The award was presented recently in Minneapolis at ICMA’s annual conference and recognizes the county’s efforts to incorporate performance data into decision-making, nurture the program through training and process improvement, and share its successes via networking with others.
