The Lowenstein Trust Award

December 13, 2012

Nick was proud to join Michelle Harper in presenting the 2012 Lowenstein Trust Award to William West in City Hall during Wednesday’s council meeting.

William “Bill” West spent 30 years of his life dedicated to Portland communities who are dealing with developmental disabilities.

In the most recent years Mr. West has worked helping local governments understand the need for public policies dealing with the underserved and many times overlooked members of our community.

The Lowenstein Trust Award is given to those whom, in the trustee’s opinion, “have contributed the most in assisting the poor and underprivileged in the city of Portland, Oregon. Each year the recipient must be in need of these funds to help carry his or her work and must use the award to further the type of work for which it was given.”
