John C. Randolph Award

The John C. Randolph Award was established to honor a person or organization in the community who exemplifies the mission of the Palm Beach Fellowship of Christians & Jews. It was named for current Fellowship chair, John C. "Skip" Randolph, who was also the first recipient, following a decade of service as chair from 1993-2003.


The 2018 Randolph Award was presented to Joyce McLendon at the Annual Fellowship Dinner on January 17, 2018. Joyce was a founding member of the Fellowship and remains an active member of its Board of Directors. She was also a founder of The Lord's Place and the Arthritis Foundation. Known for her quiet philanthropy, hands-on participation, and passion for the causes she champions, Joyce has also been actively involved with the Lighthouse for the Blind, the Alzheimer's Association, the John A. Marshall Foundation, and the YWCA.
