Andrea Abernathy Grace Andrews Deborah McConkey

An ACL volunteer is recognized annually who has exhibited exceptional dedication and has performed a volunteer service worthy of mention. This award is nominated by our volunteer leaders and selected by the ACL Board of Directors. This last year was exceptional and so was the work of this team! The work of these ladies impacted the lives of ACL members in some way in the last 12 months. This team has gone above and beyond in striving to serve and encourage our membership during such a challenging year. They have sent over 500 hand-written notes (twice!!), started a new prayer ministry initiative, and continue to organize the monthly Reference Point Devotionals. They care deeply for the ACL membership and continue to look for ways to encourage fellow members in their faith-empowered librarianship. Many ACL members are blessed by their spiritual encouragement efforts! It is our pleasure to recognize the team members of the Spiritual Encouragement Team as the 2021 ACL Volunteers of the Year.
