Mayor's Advisory Committee for People with Disabilities

For more than 26 years the Mayor's Advisory Committee for People with Disabilities has been recognizing people for their contributions to the disability community. Each year, in conjunction with the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center, the advisory committee holds an annual recognition and awards event.

The committee seeks nominees who go above and beyond to aid the disability community in some way. The following are a few of the examples of such people and organizations!

  • Perhaps you know a person who volunteers for an organization that serves the disability community?
  • Is there an educator who goes out of their way to assist a special needs student?
  • Do you know someone with a disability who excels and inspires the people they come in contact with?
  • How about an agency that serves the disability community that needs to be given their due props?
  • Is there a company or store that goes out of their way to employ persons with disabilities?
  • Do you know an artist, performer or athlete that excels and inspires despite their obstacles?

NOTE: The only restriction is that the award recipient must be a Davidson County agency or resident. Individuals nominated who live out of County but who work in Davidson County are eligible.

Please contact Bridget Galvin ( with a nomination or for information.
