Senior selected as Wyoming's representative
Volunteer work doesn’t go unnoticed
When Merrilyn Shanebrook found out she was selected to represent Wyoming for the Fabulous 50 program, she didn’t even know what they were talking about.
“I didn’t even know much about it until I was told I won,” Shanebrook said.
In fact, she is still finding out about the program.
The Older Americans Act is celebrating its 50th year; and as a way to celebrate, they decided to select one outstanding senior from each state to act as the face of the National Association of States United for Aging and Disabilities Fabulous 50 program.
The vote was close, Shanebrook won by two votes.
