Amanda Collinson Reinhart
Nominated by Annette Funn

Amanda is the secretary for Bayside Baptist Church in Chesapeake Beach and is known for her beautiful personality. Her warm speaking voice can melt away an iceberg. She is always full of love, joy, inner peace and patience. 

While she is the church secretary, she volunteers well beyond her work hours. She never complains about working long hours after everyone has gone home, often covering meetings for others and recording minutes at council meetings held at night. 

During the week of July 7-15 she accompanied a team of middle and high school students as a counselor from our church to a camp in Ridgecrest, North Carolina. She is concerned that young people get spiritually grounded so that they will have a great foundation to begin a good life for themselves.

Amanda is a young person who loves Calvert County. "An attitude of gold" is what beautiful people in Calvert County are all about and that is what Amanda has.


Jeff & Lisa Seibert
Nominated by Joyce Darrell,
Pets with Disabilities

When needed most, Lisa and Jeff Seibert are always there.This compassionate couple has volunteered for the Pets with Disabilities rescue for many years. Their help and support is invaluable to some very special dogs. 

Jeff and Lisa work full-time jobs downtown, but when the weekend comes, they become rescue warriors dedicated to homeless dogs. From cleaning the rescue facility to mowing the lawn, they never complain about poop scooping, trimming bushes, excavation work, transporting dogs or just handling the dogs and giving them lots of human attention and love. 

This caring couple is a major part of the Pets with Disabilities family. They’ve even adopted two dogs – one who is blind and one who has three legs and is very shy.

Not only are they hands-on, but they have donated to the critical care fund that helps dogs who are extremely ill or severely injured. There are many success stories thanks to Lisa and Jeff’s help. Volunteers like these two are one in a million. They are heroes and have made the Pets with Disabilities rescue a better place.
