This prestigious scholarship recognizes Lara as someone who has demonstrated a history of supporting child support professionals through her profound knowledge of intergovernmental issues, teaching seminars, coordinating conferences and planning sessions, working on intergovernmental committees, and demonstrating a commitment to resolving issues within intergovernmental child support issues. 

“I am very humbled and honored to receive the first Patrick W. Quinn Intergovernmental Scholarship Award.

This includes registration fees, transportation costs to and from the conference up to $500, hotel room, and a daily stipend for conference-related expenses during the event. 

“Pat reminds us to never forget the impact our actions have on the families we serve.
