Conexus recently honored Delegate Lee Ware with its prestigious ‘The Joseph Nichols Award’ in recognition of his ongoing efforts to remove poor vision as an obstacle to children’s success in school and in life.
“Delegate Ware has made a significant difference in the lives of children throughout the Commonwealth, addressing both a public health and public education issue,” said Tim Gresham, CEO of Conexus.
In addition to serving two terms on the Conexus Board of Directors, Delegate Ware has worked to update and modernize the state law dealing with public school based vision screenings. This past year, Delegate Ware introduced a budget amendment to support a pilot program that provides for comprehensive vision programming in more than thirty school districts across Virginia, serving more than 55,000 children.
