Freida Carbery, volunteer coordinator with Healthy Communities Coalition of Lyon and Storey Counties, and others from throughout Northern Nevada will be honored at the Human Services Network’s annual awards ceremony 8-10 a.m. Thursday in Reno. Healthy Communities Coalition’s meeting this month is canceled because it falls on the same date.
Carbery was nominated for her work in recruiting and organizing more than 1,600 volunteers for three Remote Area Medical clinics that brought over $656,000 worth of dental, medical and vision services at no cost to a total of 2,111 Nevada patients.
Other winners of Human Services Network awards this year include: Ray Hagar, Media Representative of the Year; Judge Scott Pearson of the Reno Justice Court, Politician of the Year; Mike Faultich of Ridge House, Board Member of the Year; Frieda Carbery, Healthy Communities Coalition, Staff Member of the Year; Anne Schiller of Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada, Administrator of the Year; ACTIONN, Agency of the Year; and Connie McMullen, receiving the Michael O’Callaghan Humanitarian Award.
