Robert "Bob" Meredith Receives the 2017 Barbara Varon Volunteer Award
Oct. 27, 2017
In recognition for his years of exemplary community and volunteer work in Fairfax County, Robert "Bob" Meredith was honored by the Board of Supervisors with the 2017 Barbara Varon Volunteer Award during its meeting October 24. The award, named to honor the memory of Barbara Varon, former chairman of the Fairfax County Electoral Board, was established to recognize a Fairfax County resident’s dedication to improving the community through volunteer service.
This year’s Barbara Varon Volunteer Award recipient was nominated by The League of Women Voters of the Fairfax Area. Mr. Meredith joined the League in 2015 and has been very involved in leading voter registration and education booths in the county. Last year, Bob oversaw and participated in more than 35+ voter drives. As a Fairfax County resident, Bob demonstrated a strong appreciation for the diversity of our community’s population, and because of his fluency in Spanish, he has assisted non-English speaking citizens from Hispanic communities with voter registration and election education throughout the county.
This year, Bob became the Voter Registration Chair, which requires hundreds of volunteer hours. Bob has already led two voter registration training sessions at the Packard Center for 40 new League members and will host and oversee many more in the future.
