1998 Sheila Forsner Award Presented to Nancy Foy
On March 18, 1993, Tom Foy was killed by a drunk driver. His wife Nancy "wanted to die. It was the only way to tolerate this horrendous pain." Then Nancy found AAIM. She joined the AAIM Board of Directors and the AAIM Benefit Fashion Show Committee.
Nancy worked tirelessly on making our silent auction a tremendous success. Along with her mother, Bernice, she went to businesses all over the Chicagoland area "selling" AAIM and our program of donating money to victims who have been financially devastated by an uninsured/underinsured motorist.
Nancy took over the enormous task of compiling the results of our annual DUI survey of police departments and sheriff's police from all over the state. She put her computer skills to good use crunching numbers and creating awards for those police officers who deserved recognition for their outstanding job, arresting impaired drivers.
Nancy had given so much to this cause. She has started giving speeches to DUI offenders in order to demonstrate the devastation that drunk driving caused. The victim impact panels are presented in hopes that offenders will not repeat their crime and cause another family the pain victims endure.
AAIM salutes the dedication and perseverance of this remarkable woman.
