Robert Harris honored with Living Legend Award

VERO BEACH – Friends and colleagues gathered to honor Robert Harris, Managing Director of Harris, Cotherman, Jones, Price & Associates, who was presented with the Senior Resource Association Living Legend Award, at the second annual Legends Among Us reception at Quail Valley River Club.  Harris was chosen as the award recipient because of his public achievements, including as Chair of the American Association of Certified Public Accountants, his professionalism and his invaluable contributions to the community through his support of non-profit organizations.

With his renowned oratory flair, John Moore quipped that he was still trying to figure out how Harris had become a “senior,” but also spoke of movingly about a lasting friendship that has transcended time, noting that what makes a legend is the way a person cares for his family and community and leads others in his profession.

Moore introduced as the award presenter, former Florida Governor and U.S. Senator Bob Graham. Earlier in the day Graham had addressed a group at the Vero Beach Book Center about his new book, America, The Owner’s Manual: Making Government Work for You.

Graham first met Harris in 1977 when Graham was beginning his Democratic gubernatorial campaign and Harris was chairman of the Indian River Republican Committee.  Despite political differences, a friendship blossomed over the years and Graham complimented Harris’s outstanding service to his profession and his high standard of public ethics.

Funds raised by the event will help fund Senior Resource Association projects such as Meals on Wheels, Adult Day Care, Case Management, Information and Referral, and Community Coach. {igallery 150}
