Sierra Nevada Children’s Services has awarded the Lenahan Lifetime Achievement Award to Judge Carl Bryan and the Children’s Service Award to Leyda Morales.

Both individuals will be honored on April 25, 2007, 6:30 p.m. at the Miners Foundry in Nevada City.

Bryan was nominated for his ability to create a culture of openness and collaboration among local social service agencies, resulting in the establishment of higher standards and accountability for everyone working with youth.

His willingness to think innovatively challenged youth-oriented agencies to come up with new and creative ways to serve children and families. He has spent hours serving as a mentor demonstrating creative and effective problem-solving.

Morales has been nominated for providing Spanish translation to parents of children in the Grass Valley school district. As a translator, she volunteers at meetings and conferences and assists families at medical appointments.

The Children’s Service Annual Award began in 1993 to recognize individuals in the local community who provide extraordinary contributions to the welfare of local children.
