Nominate a community volunteer for AARP's 2019 Andrus Award! Named after AARP's founder, Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus, the Andrus Award honors outstanding individuals in every state who donate their time, skills and passion as a volunteer. Every year we gather at our annual Andrus Awards event and celebrate the dedication of Maryland's wonderful volunteers.
In honor of Black History Month, we are proud to feature a personal story from our former state pres ident Clarence "Tiger" Davis. Tiger reflects upon his experiences as a black Vietnam veteran reintegrating into a society that did not wholeheartedly welcome him with open arms. However, despite the racism and violence cast on to people that looked like him, he still stood tall for his country. He believed in America and despite the hostility at home, wanted to serve and protect its democracy.
