Marble Hill pair chosen for Points of Light honor

Tuesday, February 4, 2003

WASHINGTON -- Brian and Jo Ann Barrett of Marble Hill, Mo., were selected the Daily Points of Light for Monday.

The award is given by The Points of Light Foundation and Volunteer Center National Network in partnership with the Knights of Columbus and the Corporation of National Service. It honors those who made a commitment to connect Americans through service to help meet critical needs in their communities, especially those focused on children.

The Barretts volunteer their time, talents and money to Girl Scouts of Otahki Council, Mississippi Valley Therapeutic Horsemanship, Notre Dame High School and St. Vincent de Paul School.

President George W. Bush and former president George Bush have endorsed the Daily Points of Light Award, and each will send a congratulatory letter to the Barretts.
