Roscoe R. Nix Distinguished Community Leadership Award

Printer-friendly version

The Roscoe R. Nix Distinguished Community Leadership Award is presented each year at the Montgomery Serves Awards event by the County Executive to individuals who, over the course of their lives, have made extraordinary contributions to the quality of our community at the very highest levels of excellence. This prestigious award was established by County Executive Ike Leggett in 2012 to honor community icon Roscoe Nix, who gave half century of service to Montgomery County. The Nix Award is the county’s equivalent of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the local version of the nation’s highest civilian award.

Mr. Nix served as President of the Montgomery County Branch of the NAACP, Member of the Montgomery County Board of Education, and in many other ways. Click here for a bio of Roscoe Nix.
