Robert Pfeiffer
Nominated by Greg Kellner

Robert has been a volunteer at the Calvert Marine Museum for nearly 20 years. He is a dependable behind-the-scenes guy, coordinating the bars at the Waterside Concerts, running the Corbin Pavilion stage for events, covering many evening activities and much more. Some days during concert season Robert volunteers up to 18 hours, never slowing down or missing a beat.

Robert is also a talented musician and is always willing to perform at events such as the Solomons Maritime Festival and Patuxent River Appreciation Days. He even entertains the staff and volunteers at the museum’s annual Christmas chili party.

He is also one of the original founding members of The Friends of the One-Room School House and has spent many years as president of that organization. Robert is currently giving his time and energy as a member of the board for the Southern Calvert Land Trust. He is truly someone who believes in the power of volunteering.
  Jada E’lyse Scott
Nominated by Cassandra Okwumabua

Jada is a valuable member of the Huntingtown High School family and a major supporter of the school’s Athletic Booster Club.

Over the past four years Jada has served as the club’s secretary, treasurer and concessions chair. She worked tirelessly to ensure the school's concession stands were fully stocked and operational for each home sporting event. The school's athletic director said, "There is no doubt in my mind that Jada is a rare and splendid individual who crosses an athletic director's path but once in a lifetime."

Jada’s efforts resulted in her being selected as Huntingtown High School’s 2016 Volunteer of the Year. Cassandra Okwumabua nominated Jada for Calvert You Are Beautiful and said “she makes our community a much better place for our teachers, students and parents.”

Thomas Smith
Nominated by Dunkirk Volunteer Fire Department and Rescue Squad Chief William Rector

In his 12 years of volunteer fire service, Thomas Smith has spent 10 years with the Dunkirk Volunteer Fire Department and Rescue Squad. In that time he excelled as he moved up through the ranks and served in different operational and administrative capacities.

When the department’s long-time treasurer stepped down, Thomas filled that critical role. He has made the daunting task his own while managing a multi-million dollar operation. At the same time, he still maintains an active operational role as a heavy apparatus driver, emergency medical technician and fireman.

In his recommendation, Chief Rector said the Dunkirk Volunteer Fire Department and Rescue Squad is a better place because of people like Thomas. “The department is forever in debt to his dedication and efforts”, he said.
