Deadline Approaching - 14th Annual Brother Raymond Fitz Award

Brother Raymond L. Fitz, S.M., Ph.D., served as the first chair of the Family and Children First Council and continues to work for the children and families of Montgomery County today. This annual award pays tribute to Brother Fitz, former president of University of Dayton, for his years of leadership and service to the community.

The Brother Raymond L. Fitz Award honors someone who exemplifies Brother Ray’s dedication to the cause of nurturing and protecting children and families by his/her daily efforts in the Montgomery County community.

The recipient can be a paid employee, a volunteer for an organization, an ‘everyday’ citizen, or a combination of any of these. The winner will be someone who has regular, direct contact with children and families. Commonly, these people are described as ‘front-line’ or ‘grass roots’ as opposed to an administrator, executive, or policy maker.

Nomination forms can be found online at www.fcfc.montco.org or at your local public library. Nominations are due by Friday, December 20, 2013. Please find complete instructions and requirements on the nomination form.

The Montgomery County Family and Children First Council (FCFC) was created in late 1995 in accordance with state law and also to fulfill the local desire for a "lead collaborative" to deal with issues affecting children and families. The Montgomery County FCFC coordinates human services programs across the county and established this award to honor Brother Raymond L. Fitz.
