The James McGregor Stewart Society is honoured to receive the Lois Miller Tulip Award from Independent Living Nova Scotia.
The award is "to recognize a person, group or organization that exemplifies the spirit of independent living in providing contributions to enable persons living with disabilities to have control and informed choice over their lives."
Anyone who knows Lois will testify that her energy and focus have changed the outlook for Nova Scotians with disabilities. She served as the Executive Director of ILNS for 13 years before she retired early in 2011. She brought to the position her varied experience in non-profit organizations – as teacher, public relations officer, fundraiser, municipal politician and literacy program coordinator. The Lois Miller Tulip Award is to honour her tireless and active leadership on behalf of people living with a disability.
ILNS helps individuals navigate the complex systems faced by people with disabilities. The quest to live a meaningful and independent life is often difficult. Our many efforts to highlight inequities could not have practical effect without the engagement of groups like ILNS.
The award will be presented at the annual Gala and Dance of the ILNS, December 18, 6 - 930 PM
The James McGregor Stewart Society is extremely grateful for the recognition.
