Beulah Thompson, Chair
The motto of the Community Volunteers Services Committee is “If it is to be, it is up to me.” It is with that purpose and those that follow that the committee exists.
- To lead TRTA members in providing needed services to their communities
- To provide opportunities for retired school personnel to continue their involvement in the community
- To encourage services of TRTA members on community boards, councils, and other local groups that make policies and furnish services for all people in the community
Under the leadership of Community Volunteer Services Chair Beulah Thompson and with the help of the CVS committee members Linda Harrison, Clara Graham, Mary Sue Carter, Becky Dungan, and Cathy Purgahn, MJCRSP members have an excellent record of volunteering in the community. Each year the CVS committee members encourage volunteerism among members, give them ideas about ways to volunteer, and then make contact to ensure that all members’ volunteer hours are recorded and reported to TRTA. Volunteers have faced down tropical storms, hurricanes, explosions, and a pandemic in their efforts to help others.
