FVPC Children’s Coping Skills group facilitator Liz McInerney is a 2010 recipient of the Robert E. Bryan Public Service Award. This award recognizes individuals (students, faculty or staff) who, as representatives of UNC-Chapel Hill, have demonstrated outstanding engagement and service to the state of North Carolina by working in partnership with community members while:
- Inspiring and involving others, and/or helping others to serve,
- Responding to a practical problem, issue or concern of the state, and
- Working to assure that the impact of their efforts in the community is lasting.
Liz will use the scholarship money she received with this award to work with FVPC part-time, further developing the children’s program, specifically the Children’s Coping Skills Group for children who have experienced family violence. She will continue co-facilitating these groups and also develop new relationships with local agencies and communities so that we can expand this program in new venues.
