Callwood chairs and serves as faculty advisor for the Family and Consumer Science Department at Ivanna Eudora Kean High School. She was recognized for her support of students and activities at the school.
Dockery is with the U.S. Virgin Islands Girl Scout Council. She was commended for serving as a positive role model and providing excellent leadership skills for young women and girls in the territory through the Girl Scout program.
