Bedford Resident Honored with AARP’s Volunteer Award for Community Service

Mary Scott has been selected by AARP, the nonprofit membership organization for people 50 and over, to receive Texas’s 2009 AARP Andrus Award for Community Service, the Association’s most prestigious and visible volunteer award for community service.  This award symbolizes that individuals have the power and ability to make a difference in the lives of others.

AARP Texas selected Mary Scott for her remarkable service and for the impact she’s had on the lives of others and on her community.  Mary’s energy and desire to help others has strengthened AARP in the state of Texas as well as on a national level. Her contributions to AARP as a member of the National Board of Directors, a member of the National Policy Council and the current Texas State President are hard to measure.  Ms. Scott has been instrumental in being the voice of AARP for her chapter and for her state.

The AARP Andrus Award for Community Service recognizes members and volunteers who, through volunteer service, are significantly enhancing the lives of individuals age 50 and over. The award was presented to Ms. Scott at a luncheon ceremony on October 27th at the Brookside Center in Hurst.
