About the Award: The Beulah T. Meyers Award for Distinguished Humanitarian Service was developed to honor one of the best remembered Red Cross volunteers who projected the Red Cross image in Washington County. She had the ability to motivate others so that no job was too great or too small. It was through her efforts that Red Cross programs were successfully developed and expanded to meet the needs of our ever changing community.
