John MacDonald, Director of Business Development & Client Services, for FHC receives the American Society of Public Administration award.
The Massachusetts Chapter of the American Society of Public Administration recently held its annual meeting and awards night. The well-known organization gathered at the Harvard Club in Boston, Massachusetts, where it honored professionals in several categories one of which was Distinguished Veterans. The Distinguished Veteran’s award had several nominees including Congressman Seth Moulton and FHC’s John MacDonald.
MacDonald won the award for his volunteer service in many veterans’ causes and initiatives. John serves as a board member on the non-profit Veterans Assisting Veterans (VAV) which raises money for causes such as Track Wheel Chairs for combat veterans and established a program designed to help veteran first responders combating PTSD, through equine therapy. In addition, MacDonald helped create, and now serves as Vice Chairman on the Lowell Veterans Commission which is believed to be the first of its kind in Massachusetts. The Lowell Veteran’s Commission focuses on the broader issues of veteran’s homelessness, employment and healthcare services.
FHC is proud to have this distinguished veteran and veterans’ advocate amongst its ranks. Congratulations, John MacDonald and thanks for your continued service.
