The William D. Barth Award was established in 1985 and recognizes one individual each year who has made a significant and positive impact, through community service, on the Central Kane County area.

Sponsored by TriCity Family Services, the William D. Barth Award honors the memory of William D. Barth, a founder of TriCity Family Services and a dedicated community leader.

The recipient will have worked for the community by participating in activities affecting the quality of life in the Tri-Cities. These include civic, service, charitable, educational, cultural, youth and recreational organizations, as well as church and government.
