"The Northern Virginia Community Foundation Leadership Award is presented annually for outstanding community service and dedication to improving the quality of life for all Northern Virginians and to promote awareness of the significance of individual action in effecting change.

For more than 100 years, Cox has maintained the corporate mantra of giving back to the communities it serves. We're a national company, but a local friend to our customers and the communities in which we operate. It is especially gratifying to receive this award from Northern Virginia Community Foundation because I know our two organizations share the common vision of strengthening our Fairfax community through public service, philanthropy and volunteerism," said Mr. McCollum.
