Join your neighbors and the Highland Lakes Women's Club in congratulating Rick Ogden (Grove Park Circle) and Jack Little (Southledge) for being the first recipients of the 'Highland Lakes Good Samaritan' award.
Rick was recognized for his generous actions that resulted in Bob Browning recovering his cell phone and tablet after it slid off the top of his car at the intersection of Highland Lakes Drive and Highway 280. Rick 'chased' Bob and his wife for several miles to ensure they got their electronic devices (along with credit cards and paperwork!) Rick claims that "Anyone would have done the same thing" but we think he's pretty special and a GREAT neighbor.
Jack was instrumental in getting Jamie, a stray who turned up in HighlandLakes, cleaned up, healthy and living happily in a forever home earlier this year. He generously shared his honor with a number of HighlandLakes residents as well as the Shelby County Humane Society. Thank you, Jack, for being so thoughtful!
Good Samaritan awards will be presented in October and April at a Highland Lakes Women's Club meeting. One recipient will be selected by the Good Samaritan award committee.
Nominating a Good Samaritan is not a complicated process. Just send us some information about yourself, their good deeds and how they have impacted your life or the lives of others in a positive way. We will do our best to independently verify the factual information provided and may contact the people involved to seek clarification as well. We look forward to hearing from you and providing the kind of recognition that great people deserve for great deeds well done.
