George Brown to receive President’s Award

George Brown
George Brown, retired Executive Director of Clermont Senior Services, has been chosen to receive the President’s Award at the annual meeting of the Council on Aging of Southwestern Ohio.

The President’s Award is given to individuals who are leaders in the aging network and have helped make Southwestern Ohio a better place to live for the seniors in our communities.

During Brown’s 20 years with CSS, the agency has been known for the delivery of quality, innovative, and cost effective services. In 2007 Brown initiated a plan to consolidate the agency’s administrative offices, meals-on-wheels kitchen facility, and adult day program into a single five acre campus. The plan was complete when the adult day service moved to its new location in the fall of 2011. The multipurpose room of the center is available for banquet rentals on the weekend, and expected to generate significant resources to help cover program operating costs.

During Brown’s term, Clermont Senior Services constructed six senior housing facilities and recently broke ground for a seventh. Other leadership roles held by Brown include two terms on the Clermont Northeastern Board of Education and President of the Leadership Council of Human Service Executives. He also served on many boards, including the United Way of Greater Cincinnati, Clermont Convention and Visitors Bureau, Batavia Rotary Club, Clermont YMCA, CASA for Clermont Kids, and served as a CASA volunteer guardian ad litem for two years.

In 2003 George received the Clermont Chamber of Commerce Edward J Parish Pacesetter Award for his service to Clermont County.
