Salute to Volunteers

by Jocelyn Williams, Independent Consultant

Our chapter would not thrive without the support of volunteers. This month, we want to recognize members whose outstanding service to STC has been extensive.

Associate Fellow

The Society confers the rank of Associate Fellow upon senior members who have attained distinction in the field of technical communication.

Jim Hunt, a chapter strategic advisor, was one of 23 senior members selected for this honorary rank. Jim's selfless contributions to the chapter, the Society, and the profession have been numerous.

Distinguished Chapter Service Award

For the first time, the Society has recognized four Houston members with the Distinguished Chapter Service Award (DCSA). The DCSA acknowledges the work of chapter members who provide exemplary service to the Society through their dedication to the chapter and its activities.

For many years, Verna Dunn's work within the chapter has demonstrated her strong commitment to STC. Currently, Verna serves as the nominating committee manager. Dateline Houston won an excellence award during Verna's tenure as managing editor. She has also served the chapter as secretary and student committee manager.

Ron Harberger served as membership manager for a number of years. He always fulfilled his myriad responsibilities while communicating the value of STC membership. Last year, STC Houston recognized Ron as Man of the Year. The University of Phoenix recently selected him as Teacher of the Year for his exceptional teaching skills.

Jim Hunt has made tremendous contributions behind the scenes. He has been a hard-working editor, mentor, and strategic advisor to STC Houston leaders and members for several years.

Steve Shriver has always been conscientious about educating others about the value of STC. As employment committee manager, his efforts at communicating job opportunities and coordinating our Employment Workshop have been outstanding.

Congratulations to our award winners. We applaud their achievements and thank them for their commitment to STC!
