Award honoring:

"Cecile Adler Cliffer was a cutting-edge family therapist, counselor, educator, and community participant. She was active as a board member of the League of Women Voters and Parents without Partners. She co-created Kids in Divorce, a counseling program for both parents and children. Her accomplishments, too many to list, include the Susan B. Anthony Award from the South Suburban Chapter of the National Organization for Women for “Pursuit of Truth” in 1983 for the Women’s Self-Discovery Program, which she helped develop and taught from 1963-72.

Ms. Cliffer matured in the art environment of the 1950’s and 60’s Modernism Movement. The geometric simplicity and essential quality of style of that time span imbued her taste."

I thank her family for honoring me with this award in the name of a woman of such great merit. May her accomplishments live on.
