Lawrence V. Fowler Award Nominations Sought
Nominations for the inaugural Lawrence V. Fowler Award for distinguished service by a member of a county board, authority or commission are being solicited from Fairfax County residents.
To be considered for the award, individuals must have served on a BAC for at least 10 years demonstrating exceptional service contributions to the overall quality of life in the community.
The deadline for nominations is Oct. 31. Entry applications may be obtained by contacting the Office of the Clerk to the Board of Supervisors at 703-324-3151, TTY 711, or firstname.lastname@example.org, or by visiting www.fairfaxcounty.gov/bosclerk/includes/bacs/pdf/fowler_brochure_2006.pdf.
Anyone may submit nominations. An internal selection committee will review the nominations and determine the award recipient. The award will be presented at the Dec. 4 meeting of the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors.
The award is named for Lawrence V. Fowler, who served for 41 years on the Fairfax County Consumer Protection Commission and its predecessor. He was instrumental in many of the commission’s initiatives, including drafting ordinances, position papers and reports for the protection of consumers and developing the CPC Web page. In 1990, he received the Distinguished Public Service Leadership Award for Dedicated Service to the Citizens of Fairfax County.
