Do you know someone who has demonstrated a lifelong commitment to justice, equality, and obtaining access to the halls of power for all citizens?
The Multnomah County Citizen Involvement Committee (CIC) is seeking nominees for the 3rd Annual “Sy Award.” The Sy Award will be presented to the recipient at the CIC Annual Dinner on June 17th. Past winners include citizen involvement activist Moshe Lenske and Multnomah County Office of Citizen Involvement Director Kathleen Todd. The nomination and selection process is open to nominees from the county at large, county staff, and members of county committees and boards.
The award is given in honor of Sy Kornbrodt whose passion and voice on behalf of underserved and underrepresented citizens in Multnomah County inspired the CIC to create the award. Sy’s willingness to say what he thought and get things done were legendary during his work at the Multnomah County Division of Corrections; service as a board member for the Multnomah Education Service District, with the Sullivan’s Gulch Neighborhood Association, and with the CIC; as well as his work with other initiatives and organizations. Sy is remembered fondly by those who had the opportunity to work with him.
