"I have to be honest, this is far and away the biggest thing I have ever been awarded and I am incredibly honored to be the one winner of this award for the entire state of Illinois"

Recipients across the nation were chosen for their ability to enhance the lives of AARP members and prospective members, improve the community in or for which the work was performed, and inspire others to volunteer.
