The Dover Awards Ceremony is an Arc Arkansas annual event, created to honor the late Mr. Darrell Dover of Dover Dixon & Horne. Mr. Dover was a long time friend, advocate and attorney for The Arc Arkansas as well as for individuals with disabilities. His unwavering commitment to The Arc Arkansas exemplified his true dedication in helping those with disabilities achieve the independence necessary for community life.
The Dover Awards are bestowed upon individuals with developmental disabilities in recognition of their accomplishments in the visual and performing arts.
Mr. Dover had said that one of the finest honors he has received in his extensive career of over 50 years occurred in 2006 when the Arc Arkansas honored him; naming an award program which The Arc was creating as, “The Dover Award”.
The Dover Awards are sponsored by many local and national business and government agencies. For more information on sponsorship of The Dover Awards, contact Steve Hitt, CEO or Cynthia Stone, COO of The Arc Arkansas.
