The board of directors for Children’s Learning Center is seeking nominations for the Mandy Derrington Friend of the Child Award. The award commemorates a longtime advocate for services to children and families.

Nominees will be evaluated on their contributions to children’s welfare, their initiative and creativity in developing new programs that improve children’s welfare and their excellence in profession or avocation. Past recipients include Joseph Baumgart ad Michael Thorton in 2007, Micki Chulick in 2006, Karen M. Blaser in 2005, Peter Lawes in 2004, Kishwaukee Kiwanis in 2003, Donna Bennett in 2002 and David Wirsing in 2001.
