Lake County Commissioners Recognize Volunteer Heroes

On Thursday, March 17, 2022, the Board of Lake County Commissioners recognized Lake County Volunteer Network volunteer Sue Huber for receiving the Lakeland Community College Women’s Center Woman of Achievement Award.  The 2022 awards were focused on honoring women who have led with light.

Sue Huber led with light by dedicating her time and talents as a senior to serving other seniors in need. She volunteers at the Lake County Council on Aging Mentor Meals on Wheels in the kitchen to keep seniors living safely and independently in their own homes, she serves as a volunteer guardian for three individuals in nursing homes, and she registered people for COVID vaccines at the Health District COVID hotline.  She recently added volunteering at the Lake Humane Society assisting animals in need. For fun, Sue leads with light by volunteering her time at the Lake Metroparks in a variety of roles to ensure there are quality programs for all ages and abilities. Most people may volunteer for one agency, but Sue is volunteering at four agencies, and in each volunteer position she is making a significant impact on others. Sue volunteered all through the pandemic, never missing a beat! Please click here to view the entire news release. Please click here to view the certificate.
