The MVP Inspiration

By: Jim Harvey Last May I was asked by the WHS if I would like to participate in a new initiative called the ‘Monthly Volunteer Profile’ (MVP) which recognizes and profiles a different volunteer each month.

The photographs are included as part of the article written by Brian Kozak and posted to the WHS website. I did not have to think twice about participating in the MVP program. … Continued
