The Joyful Child Foundation Honors Henry Nicholas with Lifetime Achievement Award

The Joyful

Child Foundation honored Henry

Nicholas with its Lifetime Achievement Award at their annual

Samantha’s PRIDE Awards at the Fairmont Hotel. Henry Nicholas,

Co-Founder of Broadcom Corporation, was recognized for his achievements

helping crime victims and furthering the cause of victims’ rights,

including his leadership in the 2008 passage of the California Crime

Victims’ Bill of Rights, known as Marsy’s

Law.

Former Gov. Pete Wilson calls Henry Nicholas the “driving force” behind

the state constitutional amendment, which has become the model for

remedying the mistreatment of victims by the judicial system. Passed by

California voters on Nov. 4, 2008, the law is named for Henry Nicholas’

sister, Marsy Nicholas, who was murdered in 1983.

Henry Nicholas formed “Marsy’s

Law for All” last year to empower and unify the victims’ rights

movement by providing technology, media support and other expertise and

resources. The goal of Marsy’s Law for All is to pass a U.S.

Constitutional Amendment to protect the rights of all Americans who find

themselves victims of crime.

“It’s un-American to deny victims their basic rights—rights that have

long been protected for those accused and even convicted of violent

crimes,” said Henry Nicholas. “Now we are reaching out to victims and

organizations across the country to join us in stopping once and for all

this affront to our values. It is inhuman to subject American citizens

to such mistreatment, especially when they are most vulnerable.”

The Joyful Child Foundation was founded in 2002 by Erin

Runnion in memory of her daughter, Samantha, the five-year-old

Orange County girl who was sexually assaulted and murdered that year.

The Samantha’s

PRIDE awards annually recognize community members who have promoted

child safety by preventing abduction and sexual abuse.

Henry Nicholas praised Erin Runnion for her “courage and selflessness in

turning her personal tragedy into a positive movement to protect

children from harm.”

Henry Nicholas co-founded Broadcom in the spare bedroom of his Redondo

Beach, CA. condominium. Under his leadership as Co-Chairman, President

and Chief Executive Officer, Broadcom set a record for growth by a

semiconductor company, reaching $1 billion in revenue in 36 quarters. He

is applying to the victims’ rights movement the same entrepreneurial

skills he used to build Broadcom into a multi-billion dollar, publicly

traded company. Through his philanthropic and public service

enterprises, Henry Nicholas is helping to unify and empower

organizations in the area of victims’ rights to advance the causes of

crime victims nationwide.

Sharing the Lifetime Achievement Award with Henry Nicholas was his

mother, Marcella Leach, who after the murder of her daughter helped

found Justice

for Homicide Victims, a leading victims support organization.

Marcella Leach for many years has been Vice Chair of Crime

Victims United of California, the leading political force for

victims in California. She was a signatory of the ballot initiative to

pass Marsy’s Law in November, 2008, and her radio ads were instrumental

in creating a successful electoral campaign.

In 2005, Marcella Leach was awarded the Victim’s Service Award by the

White House. Prior to her work for victims’ rights, she was a high

school teacher of English, drama, and speech, and later was an

administrator with Santa Monica College and the Santa Monica Unified

School District. She holds a master’s degree from UCLA.

Other honorees at the Samantha’s PRIDE awards included John Kobylt and

Ken Chiampou of KFI radio’s John and Ken Show, Geoffrey Fletcher,

the Academy-award winning screenwriter of the Academy Award-winning film Precious:

Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire, and Los Angeles Police

Detective Kevin Coffey.
