Delaware Andrus Award for Community Service — the Association’s most prestigious and visible state volunteer award for community service.
Roger was selected as the recipient for his remarkable service to issues that affect older Delawareans. He has been a dedicated volunteer with AARP for more than 20 years and his contributions are innumerable.
Roger is widely known as the AARP Driver Safety Statewide Coordinator and Instructor, educating Delawareans about driving safer and longer. He has had a positive impact on many through his work with programs like the AARP Fraud Watch Network, an online tool to protect people from fraud and scams.
Roger’s leadership and service extends far into the community. He has made significant changes in our communities by donating his time, energy and resources to organizations including Home of the Brave in Milford and the Shepherd’s Place in Dover. He is a member of the Kent County Crime Watch and AARP Chapter 721.
“This award acts as a symbol to the public that we can all work together for positive social change,” says Lucretia Young, AARP DE State Director. “AARP has long valued the spirit of volunteerism and the important contributions volunteers make to their communities, neighbors, and the programs they serve.”
Recipients across the nation were chosen for their ability to enhance the lives of AARP members and prospective members, and their work to improve communities and inspire other volunteers to do the same.
