2015 Dean Blietz Award Winner!
We are proud to announce that the 2015 Dean Blietz Award winner is Joan Yerian! The Dean Blietz Service Memorial Award is given annually to an exceptional individual who has demonstrated long-term, selfless dedication and compassion in the care or service to our community. This is the eighth year this award has been presented to an outstanding community volunteer.
Joan has provided 19 years of devoted service to the All Souls Episcopal Church Outreach program. She has helped countless individuals and goes above and beyond what is expected of her.
According to one of the individuals that nominated her:
Joan assists the Outreach clients in obtaining the paperwork from governmental agencies throughout the United States and frequently goes with the client to the county offices to shepherd them through the process for obtaining their proper identification. The process requires Joan to spend many hours outside the official program hours in writing letters and completing official documents.
We are proud to recognize Joan for her service in the community as a mentor and coach, friend and advocate.
