Nominations Open - Judge Richard Ware Award

September 23, 2013 9:16 AM | Anonymous

Judge Richard Ware, former chairman of the

Louisiana Children’s Trust Fund Board of Directors, was a “living” testament to the  importance of prevention of child abuse and neglect.  He served as an advocate for all of Louisiana ’s children and fought on their behalf.  Judge Ware often said: “The most precious gift a person has is his or her Time here on earth.”  He chose to use his time for the betterment of tomorrow by helping children. Although his time was tragically shortened, he left behind examples we must continue to set as standards.  This award, sponsored by the Louisiana Children’s Trust Fund, is established in his honor.  It is to recognize an individual who works in child abuse and neglect prevention and is an example of the extra commitment to children set by Judge Ware.
