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.

FVPC volunteer Liz McInerny accepts her Robert E. Bryan Public Service Award from Chancellor Thorp.

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.

Congratulations, Liz, and thank you for your dedication to FVPC!
