GDR Superstar Mary Miller
To honor these special volunteers, we unveiled a new volunteer recognition program in 2019. At the end of each clinic during the farewell dinner, we honor volunteer service with a small token of appreciation and a big round of applause. Here are a few stellar volunteers we recognized this spring:
• Traveling besties Suzanne Maslo and Jill Eckert who have volunteered together in each country where we work.
• Dick Dobbin and Jim Gilman who volunteer with their grandkids showing the next generation how to give back.
• Darshani and Sanjeev Khosla our MVP in-take team from the great state of Texas who have together volunteered in 30 clinics.

• Tomme Bjerke who loves working with the SMD students and returns every spring to Nepal.
