LaVerne Gold is a wonderfully talented social worker and leader. Her ability to communicate, develop support for her ideas, convince others that serving the needy, unfortunate and vulnerable is critically important. LaVerne is capable of doing this while always giving the credit to others, and promoting a team philosophy which perpetuates the momentum that she has started. Congratulations LaVerne, and thank you for your service. I am less knowledgable about Mr. Bloodworth, congratulations on achieving this honor.
