The Royal Rosarian Foundation presented the awards for Newsmaker of the Year to local heroes who have performed acts of bravery or service to the community without regard to personal safety or public recognition. The recipients are nominated by local media representatives including Ms. Fitzpatrick, who was nominated by The Skanner News.

Jerry Foster of The Skanner News nominated Ms. Fitzpatrick for her work developing PCRI’s Pathway 1000 initiative. The Initiative aims to mitigate and prevent involuntary displacement of North and Northeast Portland’s historic residents, including the African American community, which has been disproportionately impacted.

Mr. Foster presented the award to Ms. Fitzpatrick alongside Rosarians Robert Hungerford and Rick Saturn, pictured above.
