Marcia Cooper Receives Brain Injury Advocacy Award
Spectrum Generations is pleased to announce that Marcia Cooper, a recent addition to its Aging and Disability Resource Counselor staff, was honored on March 28, 2014 at the Wells Conference Center at UMO as the recipient of the Lewis and Clara Lamont Brain Injury Advocacy Award.
Richard Brown, Co-chair of the Acquired Brain Injury Advisory Council of Maine and CEO of the Charlotte White Center, and Lewis Lamont, presented the award to Ms. Cooper recognizing her “for more than 20 years of service, advocacy, and pure compassion for people with brain injury and their families in Maine”.
This award was created in 2005 by the Acquired Brain Injury Advisory Council of Maine (ABIAC) to recognize the efforts of the Lamont family, after their son’s injury in the late 1980’s, to improve services and educate Maine about the difficulties faced by all people impacted by a brain injury.
Spectrum Generations would like to join Mr. Brown, Mr. Lewis, and the people of Maine in recognizing Ms. Cooper for all the work she has done to champion the needs of all people with brain injury. Her tireless effort and dedication is an example to all who have the privilege to work with her. Thank You Marcia for all you have done and continue to do each day to advance the services and increase awareness of the challenges faced each day by people with brain injury.
