Liz Fuller, Sycamore Square, was honored for her years of service last month when she received the Citizen Recognition Award from the Greater Wilshire Neighborhood Council.
A longtime neighborhood advocate, Fuller has been a board member of the neighborhood council the past eight years. She has served as secretary and recently stepped down as treasurer as well as worked on GWNC Land Use and Outreach committees.
Owen Smith, GWNC president, said, “Liz breathed new life into her neighborhood association that had languished without a sense of direction; Liz assumed a leadership role at the Wilshire Crest Elementary School, gave it commitment and vitality that had not been apparent for over 20 yrs.
“She accepted the role of secretary, did all of the things that mean so much that no one else was willing to do, spent hours and hours of time following up on the mail and the many demands of the office, filled in as treasurer and kept the rest of us on track. She was indispensable and her contributions will be sorely missed.”
A Woman of Larchmont, Larchmont Chronicle, 2008, Fuller served as president of the Sycamore Square Neighborhood Association. Her community activism kicked off by helping to resurrect the dormant neighborhood group.
As a neighborhood representative for the GWNC, she focused on downsizing development projects in the area. But her passion, the Midwest native and mother told the Chronicle, is public schools. At Wilshire Crest Elementary, she helped build a garden, among other things.
