VALLEY — During the annual Colorado Emergency Management Conference held at the Hotel Elegante in Colorado Springs February 27th through March 1st the Colorado Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (DHSEM) recognized outstanding professionals in the Emergency Management field including Volunteers from the 9 All Hazards Regions. Michelle Stubbs was presented with the San Luis Valley Volunteer of the Year Award for 2017.
Michelle is the coordinator for the newly formed and founded SLV Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters (VOAD) group and American Red Cross (ARC) volunteer. Courtney Strother, close friend of Michelle and American Red Cross volunteer, accepted the award on Michelle’s behalf as she was out of state with a family emergency.
Michelle is a mother, wife, friend and business owner in addition to the hundreds of hours she donates annually as a volunteer. Those that know Michelle admire the energy and professionalism she daily demonstrates when volunteering with the Red Cross or SLV VOAD. Michelle is that caring voice, friend and advocate for those experiencing what may be the worst event of their life.
She is respected and loved by her colleagues as the experienced, humble, genuine volunteer always prioritizing the team, her customers, and the services they collectively provide.
The next time a wildfire or flood displaces a community, you can bet that Michelle Stubbs will be present ensuring her Colorado family is being taken care of.
Congratulations Michelle Stubbs on a job well done!
