The Lou Fant Memorial Fund Committee was established in honor of the beloved and renowned Lou Fant, interpreter, educator, mentor, author, and actor.
This committee was charged with creating an opportunity to acknowledge the accomplishments of two worthy local individuals: one exceptional interpreter and one Deaf community member who has been of significant support to the interpreting community. From this committee the Lou Fant Distinguished Service Awards were developed. Several interpreters and Deaf community members have been recipients of the awards to date. This fund is intended to continue the support of this awards process in recognizing deserving individuals.
