This month’s member highlight is Joan Hudson, owner of A.R.B. of Louisiana and 17-year ARA member and Director. Outside of being an exemplary ARA board member, Joan is passionate about volunteering with the non-profit Providence House, a shelter for battered women and their children, in Shreveport, Louisiana. Providence House is more than just a shelter, it’s also a rehabilitation center that takes 18 families at a time through an 8-week course to teach life and job skills. Once the family completes the course, Providence House provides them with housing. Joan runs errands, picks up groceries from Brookshire’s, fulfilled Christmas gifts for an entire family, and worked with John Messiah at Uber to provide the women at Providence House with a special Uber discount that allows them to get from point A to point B. Joan is grateful to have support from her whole A.R.B. team and says Providence House is a great cause that she is happy to put her time and energy into.

living-proof-teamThis month’s member highlight is Toni McCollister, owner of Faith Financial Group out of Fort Worth, Texas. Each year, Toni rallies her staff to participate in Relay for Life, the signature fundraiser for the American Cancer Society and an organization that is very near to her heart. Toni’s sister was diagnosed with breast cancer 15 years ago and in 2016, Toni’s other sister was also diagnosed. When asked about the fundraiser, Toni said, “I think Relay for Life is just that, living proof that we can survive not only breast cancer, but all cancer that does not know age, race, ethnicity, religion or other differences.”

Thank you Toni, for inspiring all of us and for being such an exemplary ARA member. We’d also like to give a shout out to Paul Bruce, ARA Member from Northeast Adjustment Bureau in Boston, MA, who also raced in and donated to the North Texas cancer race in September.

John Morgan is ARA’s director of faeeb1c1-0359-4af4-adb7-05f349110330compliance. If you haven’t spoken to him and/or seen him speak, you need to. As the director of compliance, he vets and ensures all documents that are put into ARA’s compliance program are validated and put in their proper spot. He also, within ARA’s Green Light program, contacts members with any issues they may have within their compliance documents. He also coordinates site inspections with Home Office. When he’s not keeping ARA members in the green, he spends his spare time making spirit signs for high school sports programs (think football, basketball, etc.) and end of the season senior gifts. Most of the money he’s paid goes back into the sports program. It’s his labor of love. His biggest project this past year was a sign for a catholic school that took him six months to complete. The school wanted to honor those who contributed to making the new floor a reality, so John took pieces from that old floor and created a 4’ X 3’ tribute. If you want to know about our compliance program or simply want to get to know John, email him at john@americanrecoveryassn.org.

AJ Bruce, son of Paul Bruce, Jr., has always had a passion for weapon design and application. Even in his childhood, AJ was enthralled with the Military Channel. This fascination manifested not only in AJ’s unfolding career, but in his strong character as well.

AJ received his Master’s Degree in mechanical engineering from Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, New Jersey this past spring. AJ worked his way through college, doing whatever necessary to achieve his goal. This competitive outdoorsman stunned employers when he and four other seniors from his class entered their project in a demonstration against schools from all over the country. AJ’s team won the bid and were deemed the “A team,” resulting in him obtaining three job offers from military contractors before his graduation. (more…)
