2017 Award Winners
Holdren has made an impact with her community service work through a variety of volunteer positions from Bill’s Place, Rare Breed Youth Outreach Center, and Campbell United Methodist Church. Through her passion to provide food and supplies to Rare Breed, she has been able to get her congregation connected to the cause allowing her outreach to expand. She thinks of others first, offering her selfless service with no other expectation of compensation or recognition. When she sees a need, she does all she can to meet that need. Her energy is contagious and she creates a culture of compassion everywhere she goes.
Willis has made an immense impact on the children and the entire team at Isabel’s House over the past year, not only with his gift of time, but also with his gifts of compassion, encouragement, positivity, and flexibility. He has logged over 250 hours of service with Isabel’s House since starting in March 2016, and has become increasingly involved as his love of Isabel’s mission has flourished. In fact, of the 939 volunteer hours given by 40-plus active volunteers so far in 2017, this nominee accounts for 118 of them, all while also serving as president of the MSU chapter of Habitat for Humanity and carrying a full 18-hour class load!
