Tax Collector's humanitarian award makes debut

Congrats to Susan Profant, recipient of the Manatee County Tax Collector's office first Lillie Robinson Humanitarian Award for Community Service.
A staff member for 23 years, Profant is the office paralegal and has devoted untold hours pro bono to helping those in need. She supports Guardian Ad Litem and is active with the Paralegal Association. She has served as a volunteer and boardmember of the North River Pregnancy Center for 10 years. As a member of Emmanual Baptist Church, she plays the piano for worship services and teaches Sunday School.
Lillie Robinson was a former Tax Collector employee and role model for her community service, according to Tax Collector Ken Burton Jr.
"She gave financially, volunteered many hours and served with a giving spirit for many years," he said.
When Robinson passed, the Tax Collector staff voted to start an annual award to be presented to an office employee who mirrored the award namesake's devotion.
"We are very proud to recognize Susan Profant and her excellent service to Manatee County," Burton said.
