The Jim Bouley Family Lifetime Award for Altruism

Formerly known as the Santo J. Aurelio Award for Altruism


The newly renamed Jim Bouley Family Lifetime Award for Altruism honors working captioners and/or court reporters who give back to the profession and the community with no expectation of any reward. This award, given by NCRF, was formerly known as the Santo J. Aurelio Award for Altruism.


Nominations are now closed.








Award history

In 1996 Mrs. Josephine C. Aurelio gave NCRF a generous donation to honor her husband’s lifetime of altruistic endeavors. NCRF established the Santo J. Aurelio Award for Altruism, and each year, beginning in 1999 at NCRA’s Centennial Convention, one altruistic person devoted to the court reporting and captioning professions receives this honor.
