The Illinois Juvenile Justice Commission has named Connie Kaiser, longtime superintendent of the Champaign County Juvenile Detention Center, as the 2013 recipient of the commission’s Juvenile Justice Champion Award.

“For more than three decades, Connie Kaiser has helped improve the lives of every child and every family member to walk into the Champaign County Juvenile Detention Center, and her innovative programming and involvement of community volunteers has made the Champaign County center a model for every other detention center in Illinois,” said George W. Timberlake, commission chairman.
