Headquarters to honor two Lawrence residents Friday

Headquarters Counseling Center will honor two Lawrence residents at the group’s annual Life Support Refresher event, which runs from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday at the Carnegie Building, 200 W. Ninth St.

Former Kansas University business professor Joe Reitz will receive the 2012 Life Saver Award for his role in founding the Lawrence branch of Family Promise, an organization that helps homeless families. And Karrey Britt, a former Journal-World health reporter, will receive the Life Friend Award for her reporting on mental health-related issues in the Lawrence area.

Jay Wachs from Great Plains Media will emcee the event, and the band “Floyd the Barber” will perform. Tickets — which can be purchased at the door — are $40 for one person or $75 for two. For more information, call Headquarters at 841-9900.
