First year HCIM student and Iraq war veteran Rebecca Stone was one of the recipients of the 33rd Annual Governor's Service Awards. A little  bit about the award itself:

 

"Each year, the Governor’s Service Awards recognizes outstanding individuals and groups throughout Maryland for their commitment to service and volunteerism.

 

Rebecca is an 11-year veteran and wounded warrior of the U.S. Army. She served in Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation New Dawn, and is a member of the Chickasaw Nation of Oklahoma. She’s volunteered in numerous capacities, such as a Girl Scout Leader, Big Sister, Boy Scout Merit Badge counselor, and as an advisor to the Veteran’s Administration and Congress on minority veterans’ health issues in Maryland. A commissioner on the Maryland Commission on Indian Affairs, her Native American upbringing in Oklahoma showed her what was needed to combat the issues that children, youth, and women encounter. She received the President’s Volunteer Service Award-Gold and was awarded the Military Outstanding Volunteer Service Ribbon. What makes her volunteer service so extraordinary is her patriotism, dedication, and success not only as a Native American, but also as a wounded warrior and a woman."

 

Congratulations, Rebecca!
