will be presented to:

— Michelle A. Rhee, chancellor of the D.C. public schools — Spirit Award for Humanitarian Leader. The award cites Rhee’s “belief in the importance of social equity for the poorest, most challenged children in our region, and her persistent efforts to refocus the public school system on providing an academic vision for each and every child.”

— Duchy Trachtenberg (D-At Large), Montgomery County Council member — Spirit Award for Humanitarian Advocate. The award notes Trachtenberg’s commitment to the community’s changing needs. “Whether it is her response to the victims of domestic violence with the creation of the Family Justice Center or her support of NCCF’s Community Liaison position to address the growing population of undocumented women and families at the Betty Ann Krahnke Center for New Beginnings, Trachtenberg’s impact is widespread, powerful, and felt by many.”

— Montgomery County Community Foundation — Spirit Award for Humanitarian Philanthropist. The award recognizes the foundation, including its executive director, Sally Rudney, as “a collaboration of philanthropic leaders who truly understand the contemporary, broad-based challenges faced by nonprofit, voluntary organizations.”

— James Ward, FutureBound Independent Living Program — John F. White Alumni Award. Ward spent his adolescent years in multiple foster homes and group facilities. He is being honored for his “ability to overcome obstacles that most would consider too formidable to overcome.”
