Congratulations to Our 2017 Lifetime Achievement Award Winner
Thursday, June 15, 2017
Congratulations to our 2017 Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, J. Melodee Schultz, from the Houston Chapter. Here are a few excerpts from her nomination:
Melodee has been an enthusiastic cheerleader for the mission of SDA. She has encouraged, mentored, participated and generously given of her time and experience to grow the membership, and who leads with grace and dignity. When her chapter began to struggle, she stepped back into a local leadership role to serve her chapter.
Melodee believes that when attending the SDA National convention, her most important job is to meet new members and engage them in conversation, encouraging them to get involved. She understands the importance of a positive experience for convention attendees. As a result of that passion, she has recently enhanced her legacy and shown her continued support of SDA by proving a pledge of an annual donation to the Past Presidentâ€™s Council Foundation for the provision of scholarship earmarked for a first-time attendee to attend EDSymposium.
The jury commented that that the selection process was a difficult task, however, they all agreed that Melodee demonstrated outstanding achievement and excellence through her leadership and lifetime commitment to SDA. Her lifetime commitment to providing value for members through advocacy, mentorship and education is inspiring. We couldn't agree more -- congratulations Melodee!
