Senator Dennis Baxley Honored
with Stephen R. Wise Advocacy Award

The Florida Rehabilitation Council (FRC) created the Stephen R. Wise Advocacy Award to recognize a dedicated Florida leader and champion who promotes independence through work and community activities for individuals with disabilities. The FRC selected Senator Dennis Baxley, as the 2018 Stephen R. Wise Advocacy Award winner. The FRC considered many outstanding nominees for this year's award and voted on May 16, 2018, to present this award to Senator Baxley to recognize his legislative leadership and personal commitment to create and promote meaningful employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities.

Senator Baxley has championed and sponsored legislation that promotes vital services for individuals with disabilities. This legislative session, he was the Senate sponsor and secured passage of HB 1437, which provides state-paid Workers' Compensation coverage for customers of Vocational Rehabilitation and the Division of Blind Services to enhance their work experience activities.

The FRC is proud to recognize Senator Baxley with the Stephen R. Wise Advocacy Award for 2018.
