Audrey Nankervis: 9th District Winner, 2012 Peggy A. Montes Unsung Heroine of Cook County Award

Audrey Nankervis may be retired in her professional life but that doesn’t mean that she has retired from activity in her community.

Since 1998, she has been a volunteer for the National Night Out event in Maine Township which promotes crime prevention, police-community partnerships and neighborhood unity. Audrey volunteers in the Neighborhood Watch Program and believes that in order for a community to be strong and secure, each resident has a responsibility to stand up and participate.

Audrey is also a member of the Center of Concern, which is a non-profit social service agency dedicated to providing housing solutions, support services and counseling for seniors and people with disabilities.
