Audrey Schiebler

Amelia Island, FL

Audrey Lincourt Schiebler was a tireless advocate for the children of Florida. She was a founding member of the Alachua County Council on Child Abuse, and through her lobbying efforts, the state of Florida enacted the Florida Guardian ad Litem (GAL). Audrey was a leader in the building of the Ronald McDonald house in Gainesville, and she worked with Paul Newman and General Norman Schwarzkopf to establish the Boggy Creek Camp for children with chronic illnesses. She was awarded the Medal of Honor by the Florida Bar Foundation in 1990, and in 1998 she and her husband Gerry were given the Rhea Chiles Award by then governor, Lawton Chiles. She passed away in 2015, but not before she created a legacy of selflessness and child advocacy in Florida.
