Highline School Board President Bernie Dorsey is the recipient of the 2019 Laura Smith Brown Children’s Champion Award. Parent Trust for Washington Children selected Dorsey for the award to recognize his work as founder of the Conscious Fathering program.
This award, presented annually since 2001, honors the work of outstanding advocates for children and families. Past recipients include U.S. Senator Patty Murray, Governor Christine Gregoire and Bill Gates, Sr.
“Every one of our champions is dedicated to creating real change in the lives of children,” according to a statement released by Parent Trust.
Parent Trust’s Conscious Fathering program celebrates its 20th anniversary this year. Conscious Fathering classes provide practical, hands-on learning about fatherhood. More than 20,000 men have taken the class.
