On May 18, the Temperance Smith Alston Chapter of The Daughters Of The American Revolution recently honored Beth Walker, from the Sandhills Children’s Center, with the state-appointed Community Service Award.

This award was established by the National Board of Management as an opportunity for chapters and states to recognize worthy individuals or groups for outstanding voluntary achievements in the areas of education, historical preservation or patriotic endeavors.  The award was presented by Cydney Mullen, vice regent, for the Temperance Smith Alston Chapter.

Walker’s service began in the early 1980s when she served on the board of directors for The Children’s Center, helping to shape the school during its early days. After teaching in the classroom and retirement she returned to volunteer her time with the children she loves.

Walker has been a vital part of the Festival Of Trees, the largest fundraiser of the year for Sandhills Children’s Center.

“Beth is loved by both school staff and the children she serves,” says a spokesman. “She is a tireless advocate of the the school, encouraging others to volunteer their time and skills. She truly embodies the spirit of service. It was our pleasure to present this special award.”
