Michael Vanderpool of Vanderpool, Frostick & Nishanian, P.C.

This year, an exciting new legacy award was added to the Business category. It gained it’s name from the recently retired Virginia State Senator Charles Colgan. The Charles J. Colgan award was sponsored by the law firm of Vanderpool, Frostick & Nishanian and is awarded to a nominee who displays exceptional leadership within their organization and community. This year the award was presented to Rex Parr, who recently retired from his long time presidency at Didlake Inc. Mr. Parr is known as an innovator, whose dedication, and consistent advocacy for the disabled community has helped Didlake Inc. create thousands of opportunities for those with disabilities to become involved in businesses and in their communities.

We congratulate Mr. Parr as well as all of the nominees and winners of the Chamber of Commerce Annual Business Awards! We at Vanderpool, Frostick and Nishanian were proud to be a part of such a wonderful evening of recognition, and hope that it has inspired others to serve in their community and workplace, and support non-profit organizations throughout Northern Virginia!

The effort of one person can make a difference in the lives of many, and we were thrilled to help honor such extraordinary people! We look forward to supporting the Prince William County Chamber of Commerce Business Awards for many years to come!
