Thank you to this year’s Award Committee for their work in selecting our award recipients! The committee is formed by the Vice President of Operations and is approved by the Trustees for vetting the National Award Nominations and selecting the 2013 Award Recipients. The committee includes a previous plaque recipient, an executive board member, and a field staff member. These must come from different regions and the regions rotate each year. This year’s committee were (representing Region Two) Janell O’Neal, Executive Board Member, Oklahoma; (representing Region One) Jewell Shields, Previous Plaque Recipient, Colorado: and (representing Region Four) Jan Thornton, Field Staff, Michigan.
