Barbara Potts is a woman of great integrity and compassion. She is first and foremost looking out for the underprivileged and disadvantaged. She is passionate about human rights and so deserving of this award.
I have had the privilege of knowing Barbara over the course of my almost 20 years at Hope House. I continue to be in awe of her spirit and determination to help others and to ensure that their needs are met. Barbara is committed to bettering this community and doing what it takes to ensure the welfare of its citizens.
She has done so much for this community - not just for Hope House - but the community as a whole. She has put in countless volunteer hours at various agencies to help with fundraising, programming, board work and whatever else is on the agenda.
I was fortunate to be a part of a group that was interviewed for a recent article in The Examiner about Barbara. I was so touched hearing the stories that were told of Barbara and all that she has accomplished. She has done so much for so many.
Hope House would not be where we are today if it wasn’t for Barbara. She had the vision to bring a group of people together and start the agency. She has also been on all of our capital campaign committees helping to raise funds for each of our locations. She truly is an inspiration and is admired by so many. I feel fortunate to know Barbara and to know that she continues to care about the agency she started 29 years ago.
Congratulations, Barbara! This award could not have gone to a more deserving individual.
