Barbara Jumper honored with Erman Anthony Gentile Award
Every year, The Arc honors one of its own with the PCE Annual Erman Anthony Gentile Award. It’s given to the best Executive Director of the year to recognize their compassion and dedication, and this year’s recipient is Barbara Jumper.
I asked Assistant Executive Director of The Arc of Montgomery, Berks, and Bucks Counties, Pat Leo, to tell me a little bit about Barb, so I could share it with you today.
Barb heads the Dauphin/Lebanon County Arc. Her vision for improvements in services is now a reality. This year, she expanded services into Lebanon County for the first time.
Under her leadership, a state-of-the-art Representative Payee Program has been developed over a two-county area, and now helps people with financial needs manage their funds.
Barb has an ability to bring people together, and is adept at helping others understand their needs. This quality makes her an invaluable asset to The Arc movement.
Barb has a deep commitment to The Arc’s mission, and doesn’t hesitate to vocally represent the needs of her constituents. Congratulations, Barb! We appreciate all that you do!
