Congratulations to JLNVB Sustainer Betty Wade Coyle for receiving the 2011 Lewis Hine Award for Service to Children and Youth!
Betty Wade Coyle of Norfolk, Virginia, advocate for children and Executive Director of Prevent Child Abuse Hampton Roads, will be honored for her three decades of work on behalf of children. Ms. Coyle helped develop her city’s comprehensive model program for serving high-needs children twenty years ago and she continues to participate both in the program’s oversight and at its grassroots by serving on the comm unity management team and on a case staffing team. She also helped create a resource clearing house and website, kidspriorityone.org, which provides information on children’s issues, a community calendar of events, and a searchable database of over 1,000 regional child welfare organizations.
In 2008, JLNVB won the coveted AJLI/Anheuser-Busch Award for our work on the Passion into Action Luncheons and the development of the Leadership Institute. Based on the success of the Sustainer-driven Passion into Action initiative, JLNVB Active members wanted to further our mission by drawing upon the talent and expertise of our Sustainer base to train the next generation of community leaders.
