The American Red Cross recently honored local coordinator Roxey Bowers with the Grand Canyon Chapter’s Clara Barton Volunteer Leadership Award.
Bowers was honored, along with seven other award winners, during the Grand Canyon Chapter’s annual volunteer recognition breakfast May 11 at the Phoenix Zoo.
Bowers led the Payson Disaster Action Team in response to home fires, wildfires, floods and blizzards. He also recruits volunteers to the Red Cross.
“Bowers established a strong relationship between the Grand Canyon Chapter and the Payson Fire Department, and he has implemented Red Cross policy among Payson DAT volunteers,” said Brian Gomez, communications specialist with the Red Cross.
