Jerry was a member of the Network in Aging board of directors, the publisher of “Living Prime Time” and an active volunteer for many important causes. The nominee should share Jerry’s belief that “The Best is yet to Come,” and translate that belief into action.  The award is a $1000 scholarship to be used towards education and is presented during the “Taste of the Network” event.
