Catholic VA volunteers honored by Knights

WEST PALM BEACH - For Diocese of Palm Beach residents Norma “Tracy” Doherty and Mike Sedor, every day is another chance to help someone.

These two individuals spend several days each week volunteering their time and talent at the Veterans’ Administration Medical Center in West Palm Beach, serving the needs of veterans and their families. Recently, they were recognized as the Knights of Columbus Male and Female Voluntary Services Volunteers of the Year – a prestigious honor offered since 2006. Selections for the honor are made based on nominations submitted by the vice supreme masters across the 13 U.S. patriotic degree provinces.

“The award represents the top volunteers of approximately 1,000 Knights of Columbus who are regularly scheduled volunteers in 100 VA medical centers,” according to Col. Charles H. Gallina, Veterans’ Administration Veterans’ Services (VAVS) National Representative for the Knights of Columbus.

If you ask the veterans they serve and the professionals with whom they work, Doherty and Sedor were a great fit for the award because they are such genuinely kindhearted souls who live to serve God through volunteering and helping others.
