AREAWIDE — Tri-Town Youth Services recently presented their 2015 Generativity Award to Michael Fearon of Chester.  Passionate about soccer, Mick Fearon has been coaching soccer for 40 years.  He has been coaching high school soccer for 13years.

In discussing the success records of his teams, Fearon says, “there are different levels of success.”  He adds that kids often care about wins, but as a coach, he is concerned that the team is developing, players are improving and giving their best.  He chooses to focus on the process, not the outcome.

Fearon often attends his team members’ other activities, whether sports or the school musical, as he views them as whole people, not just soccer players and he wants to support them in their endeavors.

Tri-Town Youth Services has presented a Generativity Award annually since 2005.  Recipients of the award are people who, over time, have demonstrated an ongoing commitment to youth and have contributed significantly to building youth developmental assets.  Previous awardees include: Marilyn Malcarne, Rick Stebbins, Pat Kosky, Jane Cavanaugh, Ingrid Walsh, Rev. Tim Haut, Linda Hall, Barbara Nidzgorski, Phil Miller, and Dr. Ruth Levy.

Tri-Town Youth Services supports and advances the families, youth and communities of Chester, Deep River and Essex.  The organization coordinates and provides resources needed to make positive choices, reduce substance abuse, and strengthen the relationships that matter most.  Discover programs and information for families, as well as opportunities for community collaboration at www.tritownys.org
