Joe Williams presents Janis with the Stubnitz award after a great speech by both Joe and Janis! Joe describes Janis as loyal friend to all, a true tenacious leader, and always speaks up for the community she serves.  

“The bottom line is we don’t have time, we don’t think we can do it, and truly most of us think we don’t have enough treasure to share. My goal, honestly, is to inspire and encourage you to give back, to begin each day with a grateful heart, and experience the freedom to be the best version of yourself.”

I am only one, but I am one. I can’t do everything, but I can do something. The something I ought to do, I can do. And with the grace of God, I will.

-Edward Everett Hale
