2014 Mary Good Humanitarian Service Award
The Fairfield County Family, Adult and Children First Council is accepting nominations for the 2014 Mary Good Humanitarian Service Award. Mary M. Good was a teacher with the Lancaster City Schools, Christian educator at St. Bernadette Catholic Church, park leader with the United Way Summer Park program in Pleasantville, Peace School coordinator, social worker, scout leader, and so much more. Mary had a passion for children and the arts. Mary's life was cut short in January of 2002, leaving a void in the Lancaster and Fairfield County community. It is hoped that this award will encourage and recognize others who share Mary M. Good's zest for children, for life and for taking the "road less traveled". The Mary M. Good Humanitarian Service Award will go to someone who exemplifies Mary's dedication to the cause of nurturing and protecting children and families by his/her day-in and day-out efforts in the Fairfield County community. This person can be a paid employee, a volunteer for an organization, an "everyday citizen," or a combination of these characteristics. In whatever role, the winner will be someone who has regular, direct contact with children and families, and personifies the principles for which Mary stood. Sometimes such a person is described as "front-line" or "grass roots," as opposed to being an administrator or executive or policy-maker. The nominee must be a Fairfield County resident.
