HOUSING: Board and volunteers deserve recognition, too

I appreciated Larry LaRue’s column on Shared Housing Services (TNT, 8-12). It has taken a long time to get this well-deserved recognition.

I had the honor to serve on the SHS board from 2001 to 2009. The commitment of founders Dr. Stella Jones, who also served as executive director, and the late Rev. George Walker of Immanuel Presbyterian Church, was amazing. They deserve recognition for their tireless efforts, dedication of service and foresight.

Those individuals who have served and presently serve on the board as well as the numerous volunteers and donors also should be lauded for their time and commitment.
