Kay White Legacy Award: Fred Fechheimer

This year we are thrilled to honor Fred Fechheimer with the 2nd annual Kay White Legacy Award.


Fred, a retired commercial real estate and financial institution attorney, was introduced to Common Ground through his wife, Rosemary Holland, and quickly got involved by donating his time and legal expertise. As a board of trustees member since 2008, Fred has played a key role in suggesting legislation and writing and reviewing contracts for the organization. 


Fred has served on many committees and task forces over the years, including the latest Behavioral Health Urgent Care program task force. While he is generous with his time and service, Fred is best known for his unwavering dedication, passion and commitment to making a difference.

Event Proceeds to Support Rosemary Holland Institute

Proceeds from this year’s event will benefit the Rosemary Holland Institute at Common Ground. Former board member Rosemary Holland believed that human service agencies need to invest in the competencies of their staff. The Rosemary Holland Institute was established in her memory and it serves to provide critical, on-going training for our staff.


The mental health challenges in our community are changing rapidly daily. Funding the Institute will ensure we can provide our staff with the latest evidence-based skills, tools and training. We recognize that a well-qualified, passionate, capable team equipped with excellent tools and resources can make lasting change throughout our community. We’re asking for your support to lead the way!
