The Andrew Love Memorial Award to the Intervenor of the Year
This award was set up by the family of Andrew Love. He was a determined child who courageously overcame many obstacles to become an inspiration to those who knew him. Intervention was the key that unlocked doors for Andrew,
In recognition of the contribution that Intervention made to the quality of Andrew’s life, a Memorial Award was established to be presented annually to a special Intervenor who displays outstanding skills. The successful candidate will be a dedicated and compassionate individual who has devoted time and effort to enhance the quality of life of a person who is Deafblind.
A Trust Agreement was established in February of 1991 between Thomas Love and Linda Love (Settlors) and Linda Love, Linda Mamer, Christina St. Amand and Carolyn Monaco (Trustees).
According to the Trust Agreement, the Trustees shall award the Andrew Love Memorial Award in the sum of $200 to the Intervenor who, in the opinion of the Trustees, has demonstrated consistently high standards in his/her interaction with deafblind individuals.
The award is presented by the Canadian Deafblind Association at its Annual Meeting or during a National Conference. Usually the award includes a cheque for $250, flowers and a plaque. The award was first issued in 1991.
