Volunteer spotlight – September 2019: Lu Clark

This month, we are featuring Lu Clark as our volunteer of the month!

Lu first got involved with NAMI Central Virginia after taking Family-to-Family in 2005. Almost immediately, she began attending the monthly general meetings. Around that same time, she helped Sue Wiggins with her responsibilities as hospitality chair – refreshments at general meetings, service at the annual picnic & holiday party, etc. She was trained in Family to Family in 2006, and has been active in that program ever since. In fact, she will be teaching again this month! Lu also spent 6 years on the Board of Directors, serving in the roles of Recording Secretary, and Member Services chair.

Lu retired last summer from Richmond Public Schools, where she worked for 34 years as a school nurse. She still occasionally volunteers for various nursing events and substitutes at her school. When she isn’t volunteering, she enjoys working in the yard, visiting relatives, and cruising around in her jeep!
