Lawrence V. Fowler Award Nominations Sought
Sep 8, 2009
Nominations are being accepted for the fourth annual Lawrence V. Fowler Award for distinguished service by a member of a county board, authority and commission (BAC). The deadline for nominations is Oct. 1.
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 10-year minimum can be a combination of consecutive service on more than one BAC.
Residents may submit nominations. An internal selection committee will review the nominations and select the award recipient. The award will be presented on Dec. 7 at the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors meeting.
The award is named for the late Lawrence V. Fowler, a volunteer who served 41 years on the Fairfax County Consumer Protection Commission (CPC). 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.
Last year’s award went to Gilbert S. McCutcheon, a longtime Mount Vernon District representative to the Fairfax County Park Authority Board.
