Spotlight on LandPaths Local Heroes

Beverly Schwartz

"Beverly has been a volunteer spanning back the breadth of LandPaths programs, places and people.  In fact, I don't think of her as "volunteer" - but as a friend, fellow staff and LandPaths family member.  She's continually sunny and personable, doesn't know the word "late" and keeps the big picture perspective on what to worry about and what not to.  What more can you say of someone that shares your values and is willing to support the community other than "we love her"?  Besides that, she kicks me into gear and keeps me and my desk organized!" Craig Anderson, Executive Director

 

Beverly has the distinct honor of being LandPaths’ longest standing volunteer. Approximately 17 years ago, while on a hike with Howard Moes, she was told that LandPaths needed help. Beverly stepped into the (then one room) office and put her expertise in accounting and office management to work. Beverly has volunteered anywhere from 2-4 hours a week ever since, which if we did our math right, totals somewhere over 3,000 hours of volunteer service! Beverly has seen LandPaths grow from a one room, four-person staffed organization to now afour-room office bursting at the seams, hosting a staff of 14. While it was LandPaths’ amazing outings that originally drew her to support LandPaths, she now speaks most proudly of how LandPaths connects young people to the land, noting “Teaching kids to love the land is the most important work we can do”.
