LACONIA — An avid hugger at a center for children with autism is a vital part of the team. On Thursday, Nov. 20, Roger Kosits will be recognized for his contributions to the lives of New Hampshire children and families. Kosits has been a volunteer for three years at the Autism Center at Lakes Region Community Services. His significant service supports children with autism between the ages of 18 months to 5 years.
Presenting the award on Thursday at the Lakes Region Community Services, 719 Main Street, Laconia is Julie Day, Strengthening Families director at New Hampshire Children's Trust, the state's lead in preventing child abuse, and Lucy Breed. Public attending the award ceremony should arrive at 4:30 pm.
Every year, the New Hampshire Children's Trust honors an outstanding direct service volunteer with the Lucy Fowlkes Breed Family Service Volunteer Award. The award celebrates an exceptional individual who volunteers for a New Hampshire nonprofit serving children and families.
"Roger always portrays a caring, positive, and energetic outlook and takes each set of challenges and needs of the children and their parents in stride," says Nicole M. Bushaw, who nominated Kosits for the award. Bushaw says he demonstrates an ability to work with families to make them more resilient and is supportive of parents in their willingness to try new approaches to help their child succeed.
She says, "These children often seek him out when needing comfort, recognition, or just a plain old hug."
The Lucy Fowlkes Breed Family Service Award was created in honor of Lucy Fowlkes Breed, of Hopkinton, upon her retirement from the NH Children's Trust Board of Directors. Breed has been a dedicated volunteer in advocating for children and families. She served for over 20 years as the facilitator of the New Parents Support Group at the Children's Place and Parent Education Center in Concord. Lucy was also a founding trustee on the board of the New Hampshire Children's Trust, devoting 14 years of service, 8 of them as board chair.
