Tony Sos, a personal injury attorney at Dellecker Wilson King McKenna Ruffier & Sos, has been appointed Chairman of the Board of Directors at United Cerebral Palsy (UCP) of Central Florida. The position is a 2-year commitment, which began on July 1, 2016. As Chairman, Sos will lead the all-volunteer Board of Directors in providing fiduciary and legal oversight of the organization while promoting its services and raising awareness.
"I am looking forward to a great term with UCP. The schools provide vital support for parents and students of all different abilities in myriad ways. I see it as my job and the Board's job to help ensure that the support and unique services offered continue meet the needs of the families in the schools," said Tony Sos of Dellecker Wilson King McKenna Ruffier & Sos (http://www.dwklaw.com).
Sos has been active with UCP for over 6 years, serving on the Board of Directors and helping to fundraise for the organization.
"I was hooked early on. As soon as I saw how kids of all different abilities interacted and learned from one another, I was in. It really moved me to see kids learning together and from one another like that," noted Sos.
UCP of Central Florida is a tuition free public charter school. The school is a resource for families, children, the medical community, and referral agencies in Central Florida, providing support, education and therapy services in Orange, Osceola, and Seminole counties.

"Tony will be a great asset to our Board of Directors. His experience as an advocate for children and families makes him particularly well-suited to the role of Chairman of the Board. I have no doubt his deep concern for the students’ well-being will be first and foremost in his decision-making," noted Dr. Ilene Wilkins, President/Chief Executive Officer of UCP (http://www.ucpcfl.org).
