2018 Tolbert Award RecipientLeesburg, VA (March 13, 2019) – During the Leesburg Town Council meeting on Tuesday, March 12, the council and members of the Town’s Environmental Advisory Commission (EAC) presented Leesburg resident Fran Grozier with the 2018 Tolbert Environmental Achievement Award.

Grozier was selected for her efforts in reducing stormwater pollution by cleaning up residential neighborhoods and picking up trash alongside the road. 

“Not only does this make Leesburg a more attractive place to live, it has the added benefit of reducing pollution in our streams and waterways,” said Scott Billigmeier, chair of the Leesburg Environmental Advisory Commission. “Ms. Grozier’s efforts benefit all of Leesburg’s residents.”

The Tolbert award recognizes students, community groups, and individuals that conduct or participate in activities that benefit the Town’s environment. Such activities are vital to sustaining the quality and health of our community and significantly contribute to the long-term well-being of our town for generations to come. 

“If you see something that's not supposed to be on the ground in Leesburg pick it up, please, and put it where it needs to be,” Grozier said. “We have a beautiful Town. Let's keep it that way.”
