Council of Agency Executives names award recipients

The Council of Agency Executives has named three award recipients for its annual Community Partner Awards and Member of Distinction Award.

Monroe County Commissioner of Public Health Michael Mendoza and Foodlink Inc. President and CEO Julia Tedesco each will receive the Community Partner Award for their “unwavering efforts to the community during the COVID pandemic.”

This year’s Member of Distinction will be presented to Seanelle Hawkins, president and CEO of the Urban League of Rochester for the organization’s Interrupt Racism project.

The awards will be presented at the council’s annual meeting and awards breakfast slated for Oct. 26 at Irondequoit Country Club. Common Ground Health CEO Wade Norwood is the keynote speaker for the event.

The Council of Agency Executives is an association of 140 nonprofit organizations in the Greater Rochester area that offers programs for executive directors and agency staff.
