Detroit Resident Receives Shining Star Award By AARP MI

Lansing, MI - AARP’s annual Shining Star Award was recently bestowed upon Janet Seevers of Detroit. This highest of honors acknowledges leadership, service and community impact executed by an AARP Michigan volunteer.

According to AARP Associate State Director Brenda Price, Seevers sets a high bar within the organization’s Detroit volunteer community where she has given her time for 20 years. “In Detroit, we are blessed because AARP never skips a beat, not even during the pandemic, thanks largely to Janet and her commitment to our older residents,” Price said. “She truly exemplifies AARP’s motto to serve, not be served which she lives and breathes through her many roles on our team.” Price specifically noted Seevers’ work in the organization’s Detroit Information Center where she connects older adults to the services they need and her effectiveness as a presenter on fraud and new technology. Seevers, Price commented, was particularly important during the pandemic with helping people navigate Zoom and stay connected to family and friends. At an awards ceremony in Ypsilanti, Seevers’ work was heralded by national and state AARP leaders where she was just one of five AARP volunteers to receive this prestigious award.
