Congrats to DeVera Heard for being honored as an outstanding community volunteer!
Nominating Organization: Orange County Heritage Council
Honoree Category: Human & Community
Why Nominated: Dr. DeVera Heard selflessly donates her time and energy into making sure that the people in her community are served. She has put together countless fundraisers, community awareness seminars, and has completed for the umpteenth time a successful Black History Parade and Cultural Faire for Orange County. She works tirelessly and without regard for her own welfare by burning the candle at both ends. But she always makes sure that she has plenty of time to spend with her husband, two children, and brand new granddaughter Tabitha. She is an exemplary person, and a role-model for both males and females of all ethnicities. She is the epitome of what the Spirit of Volunteerism award stands for.
