On Thursday, September 9, 2021, over 330 people gathered at the 2020-2021 Eartha Dengler History Award Ceremony to honor Armand M. Hyatt. It was a beautiful evening celebrating an even more beautiful man --- filled with love as speakers highlighted the core themes of Armand's life: 

Faith, Family, and Service 

Son of a founding member of Lazarus House Ministries, Armand Hyatt is at once an attorney, community advocate, musician, poet, mentor, and surfer. And he is, above all, a leader who has used his prodigious talents to bring Lawrence CommunityWorks into existence, and to benefit Lawrence and nearby communities in countless other ways for decades. Armand’s love of family is unmistakable. So are his generous spirit, his infectious optimism, and his powerful faith in God. These qualities are there for all to see and learn from, be they pro bono clients of his law firm, young people he coaches and mentors, fellow musicians with the Wobblies, residents of Heritage Common, or the many others across all walks of life who are blessed by his daily civic and faith-driven life of service.

Our sincere gratitude to Armand and his family, our host committee, our event sponsors (, our volunteers, photographers Robert Lussier and Steven Perlmutter, videographer Andy Kelley, caterer The Party Connection, musicians The Wobblies, and the Nunez family, for graciously hosting the event in their space at 468 N Canal Street, Lawrence. Congratulations, Armand!
