FOC analyst awarded the Child Support Program Outstanding Achievement Award

The Supreme Court announced today that Friend of the Court Bureau Analyst Suzy Crittenden was awarded the Michigan Child Support Program’s Outstanding Achievement Award. The award, presented at the October 4, 2017, Annual Fall Conference, recognizes outstanding contributions and dedication to the Michigan Child Support Program.

Crittenden, who serves as a management analyst in the State Court Administrative Office’s Friend of the Court Bureau, received her MSW from Michigan State University, and has been with the child support program for over 14 years. Crittenden and her husband, Tim, live in Jackson and have one son.

“Suzy has worked tirelessly as the Friend of the Court Liaison to the Michigan Child Support Enforcement System. She has given the friends of the court a strong voice in improving the system and this recognition is well-deserved,” said Michigan Supreme Court’s Friend of the Court Director, Steven D. Capps.

Since 1992, the Michigan Family Support Council (MFSC) developed an awards program to recognize outstanding contributions and dedication to the Michigan domestic relations field.

Sandy Erskine, President of the Friend of the Court Association said: “Suzy's work for our association is invaluable. She always takes the time to dig deep into issues to help our membership stay informed. On behalf of FOCA, we would like to thank Suzy for all of her hard work and applaud her for receiving the 2017 MFSC Outstanding Achievement Award; it is well deserved.”
