Clark County Veterans Assistance Center
2014 VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR
Judy Russel received the Clark County Veterans Assistance Center (CCVAC) 2014 Volunteer of the Year award. According to CCVAC President, Joe Fettig, Judy was highly instrumental in securing the Clark County County Veterans Assistance and Resource Program (“The Fund”) at the center. The fund was previously administered by the Clark County Human Services Council at the Community Health Building on Fourth Plain. Thanks to the diligent efforts of many volunteers, CCVAC began administrating the fund in July 2014. Judy’s contribution to bringing The Fund “in-house” stands out due to her untiring efforts of wrestling paperwork and chasing information. Judy currently serves as staff for The Fund in the role of Fund Administrator in the morning and as a volunteer Veterans Service Officer in the afternoon. CCVAC extends heartfelt appreciation and thanks to Judy for all she gives to the center and the Veterans we serve.
The Clark County Veterans Assistance Centers (CCVAC) mission is to provide a welcoming and safe environment with the goal of assisting veterans and their families in obtaining benefits, services and resources to meet their basic needs.
