Diana is one of those volunteers who is quiet and unassuming, yet makes an enormous impact. Every week, she eagerly takes on a project and sees it through with little direction. She even improves upon ideas and concepts. For over two years, Diana has been volunteering in the Human Resources office-organizing, filing, researching and reporting. BCLC’s Director of Human Resources appreciates Diana’s vast skill set, anticipating her input and council during weekly volunteer visits. Diana is treasured among our staff and especially to me. Diana fiercely advocates for the needs of children with visual impairments, securing support from dozens of friends and family for her annual walk team. This year, she serves as a Mentor to this year’s Team Captains and Walkers, a true leader in building independence one step at a time.
