Jerry Dawes Wins the Brody Award

January 01, 2006 | Kim Eastman

Jerry Dawes was this year's recipient of the Wenatchee Adventist annual Brody Award. The original Brody Award was given in 1982 to Elmer and Lila Brody. It was called the perpetual Brody Award because of the lifelong commitment that the Brodys had to the Wenatchee community through the Adventist Community Services center.

The Brody Award is given each year to a person who has made an invaluable impact on their church and community. Jerry Dawes has probably blessed every member in our church in one way or another. He has been a member of the Wenatchee Church for at least 45 years and has held numerous positions to help our church function. He is a man of high integrity, has a great love for God, enjoys reaching people through Bible studies, and is passionate about reaching inactive members.

Jerry Dawes is a man who is loved and appreciated by so many, and that is why he was chosen to receive the 2005 Brody Award.
