Each year The Guttenberg Press chooses someone in the community who shares their time and talent to improve and enhance the lives of others. Our choice is often determined by who will agree to an interview, and not determined by the number of hours they volunteer – as experience has taught us those most committed to the betterment of society are quite humble and unwilling to share their story.
