NOMINEES SOUGHT FOR EIGHTH “JOHN MURRAY COMMITMENT
TO FAMILIES AND CHILDREN AWARD”

The Geauga Family First Council is seeking nominees for the eighth “John Murray Commitment to Families and Children Award.”

The award is presented on a bi-annual basis to individuals in Geauga County who have exhibited a continuous commitment to Geauga’s families and children, coupled with a special passion for their work. The Family First Council is seeking nominees who go “above and beyond the call of duty” in supporting and advocating for children and families, whether as a direct service volunteer, a board member, a human service professional, or some combination of all three.

John Murray was one of the original members of Geauga Family First Council and was not only an extremely capable County Administrator, but also a consistent advocate for Geauga's children. In his dual role on the Council as County Administrator and community representative, John epitomized the phrase "above and beyond the call of duty". He was interested in the progress of each child and the impact of each Council-funded program. John, in his quiet but effective way, always asked the tough questions and always pushed other Council members to keep the best interest of each child and family at the heart of Council decision-making.

Nominations for the John Murray Award must be received by September 18, 2015 at the Geauga Family First Council offices, 12480 Ravenwood Drive, Chardon, Ohio 44024. Nomination forms may be obtained from the same address, or by calling Rachael Tetlow at 440-285-1266.
