AARP, the nonprofit organization that works to enhance the quality of life for all as they age, has selected Beverly Biziewski to receive the 2022 AARP in The Virgin Islands Andrus Award for Community Service, the association’s most prestigious and visible state volunteer award for community service

AARP-VI selected Beverly Biziewski for her remarkable service, which has greatly benefited the community, reflected AARP’s vision and mission and inspired other volunteers. Biziewski’s contributions include volunteering for the St. John Historical Society, the Audubon Society of the Virgin Islands, St. John Singers, the Nazareth Lutheran Church and the Wounded Warriors. She is also the president of the St. John AARP Chapter No. 4777.

The award will be formally presented to Biziewski at a ceremony in the late fall. “This award acts as a symbol to the public that we can all work together for positive social change,” said Troy de Chabert-Schuster, state director of AARP-VI. “AARP has long valued the spirit of volunteerism and the important contributions volunteers make to their communities, neighbors and the programs they serve.”

Recipients across the nation were chosen for their ability to enhance the lives of AARP members and prospective members, improve the community in or for which the work was performed, and inspire others to volunteer.
