On October 24, the Hanover County
Community Services Board will host a reception to honor the 2018 Jean C. Harris Award recipients. The reception will be held at St. Paul’s
Episcopal Church at Hanover Courthouse at 4:00 p.m. This year’s award recipients are Melodie
Fearnow-Kenney, Frances Hubbard and New Song United Methodist Church.
“The Community Services Board is so
pleased to honor these 3 award recipients,” said Anne Geddy Cross, CSB member. “Mrs. Harris was legendary for her compassion
for others and her belief in the work of the Community Services Board. We
had a record number of nominations all of whom are worthy of recognition and
all who exemplify her spirit.”
The Jean C. Harris Award for Excellence has been given annually to
Hanover-based individuals, families or groups that demonstrate outstanding
contribution in the areas of intellectual/developmental disabilities, mental
health, and/or substance use.
