Neal Potter Path of Achievement Awards

In partnership with the Commission on Aging and The Beacon Newspapers, two residents aged 60 or better are  recognized for their lifetime of volunteer service in the County. This annual award is named in memory of former County Coucilmember, County Executive and longtime civic activist Neal Potter. 



Roscoe R. Nix Distinguished Community Leadership Award

This award is presented each year at the Montgomery Serves Awards event by the County Executive to individuals who, over the course of their lives, have made extraordinary contributions to the quality of our community at the very highest levels of excellence. This prestigious award was established by County Executive Ike Leggett in 2012 to honor community icon Roscoe Nix, who gave half century of service to Montgomery County. The Nix Award is the county’s equivalent of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the local version of the nation’s highest civilian award.
