Rice River Center’s own Anne Wright receives award

June 10, 2015

Friends of James River Park has honored three individuals to be the 2015 Ralph White River Hero Award winners in a ceremony held on April 30 at the VCU Rice Rivers Center. In 2011, the Friends of the James River Park launched the River Heroes Award as a way to acknowledge and honor individuals and organizations that have made significant contributions to the James River Park System. The award was renamed the Ralph White River Hero Award in 2015 to honor the contributions of former Park Superintendent Ralph White.

Honorees are chosen for a variety of reasons, which include volunteer work, educational efforts, preservation, and promotional activities that encourage responsible use of the Park. VCU Rice Rivers Center’s own Anne Wright was one of three recipients, honored for her cumulative work in the James River Park system over many years with special emphasis on the excellent work she has accomplished in developing and launching the Science in the Park website. Though many talented and knowledgeable individuals have contributed to this wonderful program, Wright has been central to the collaboration and this award acknowledges her critical role.

The VCU Rice Rivers Center extends hearty congratulations to all three of the winners.
