Facilities Access Management Excellence Award
The Loudoun County Disability Services Board (DSB) is seeking nominations for its FAME Award, which recognizes “Facilities Access Management Excellence” and honors businesses that make accessibility for people with disabilities a priority.
Most Recent FAME Award Recipient
In April 2013, the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors and Disability Services Board presented a FAME award to The Home Depot in Leesburg. The company was recognized for efforts to build a ramp at the home of a Leesburg woman who uses a wheelchair, and for landscaping around the entrance of her home. Home Depot donated all the materials and labor for this project.

Some Past Recipients
In 2011, the DSB presented a FAME Award to Cypress Equities and Village at Leesburg in recognition of Cypress Equities commercial property development and management team for exceeding American with Disabilities Act requirements by retro-fitting the Village at Leesburg property with eight handicap accessible parking spaces along Village Market Boulevard.
Other past recipients of the FAME Award are the Super Target in Leesburg and the Holiday Inn at Carradoc Hall.
A FAME award was presented to Matt Thomas, store leader of the Leesburg Super Target. In honoring Thomas, the DSB said that he and his staff "have consistently displayed a proactive, caring, and non-patronizing posture towards people with disabilities."
Another FAME award was presented to David Brooks, general manager of the Leesburg Holiday Inn. In honoring Brooks, the DSB cited Brooks' ongoing review of the hotel's facility management accessibility program and his efforts to update his staff's disabilities awareness training program.
