Titusville Community Service Award Committee

The City of Titusville established the Titusville Community Service Award in 1987 in honor of Reverend Harry R. Lee to recognize his outstanding, long-term contributions to our community. Reverend Lee had served the community as City Chaplain, Employee Assistance Advisor, Chaplain of Sertoma and Chaplain of the Titusville Area Chamber of Commerce. By his spirit, words, and actions, he personified the concept of, and set the example for, unity and service within our community.
Annually, the Titusville Community Service Award Committee seeks nominations from community members, local clubs and organizations.  They solicit names of individuals who carry on the example set by Reverend Lee through their contributions of service, which help to make Titusville a better place in which to live.  
The Committee consists of five (5) distinguished citizens who are appointed, annually, by the following:
1.  The Chairperson is appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by City Council.
2.  The Clergy Representative is appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by City Council.
3.  One member is appointed by the Brevard County School Board District 1 Representative
4.  One member is appointed by the Titusville Area Chamber of Commerce President.
5.  One member is appointed by the Brevard County Board of County Commissioners
     District 1 Commissioner.
The nominating process takes place in early spring and Committee members then review the nominations.  They have the difficult task of selecting the award recipient from among the many  members of our community who donate their time and their talents in commitment to a service or cause they believe in.
