Mississippi Auto Recovery’s Martha Randall and a few of her young at heart friends were looking for a creative way to raise funds for their church — thus the Delta Rockers were born. The Delta Rockers, all dancers aged 60 and up, took off and became quite the sensation. Covered in sequins, the Delta Rockers perform at no charge for non-profit groups, veterans groups, nursing homes, cruises and fundraisers of all sorts. The group puts on a wonderful show that involves a variety of music and costume changes. We’re sure these ladies mystify any audience for whom they perform.

 

We are so proud of Martha and her fellow Delta Rockers for the wonderful work they are doing.

ae361dec-489a-4b13-b97a-0c43501cabcb

DeAnn grew up in the repossession business and is a third generation participant in our industry. She works with her brother in managing the day-to-day operations of Preferred Adjusters, Inc. in Austin, TX. Although the business is her main job, her true calling is riding horses. She is an accomplished rider in several equestrian disciplines, including Dressage, Show Jumping and Hunter. One of her most rewarding life experiences is teaching others the skills of horsemanship. Over the years her most special students have been autistic children. DeAnn has been able to share her equestrian skills to help change the lives of these children.

On August 7, 2015, DeAnn was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer. Since that time, all of life’s little pleasures are a struggle. She has lost her job at the stable and is unable to ride. With all of the other issues she is dealing with, the loss of the joy of working at the stable is one of the hardest to face.

In her community, DeAnn has always been known to be the one to call if you are having personal issues or need a friend. If someone needed a place to stay or help with the daily challenges of everyday life, she was there for them to lean on or to lend a sympathetic ear. Now, it is this very same community that is giving her the lift that she so desperately needs. Her network of support includes all of her Facebook friends as well as a local support group of women who have dealt with, or are currently dealing with, breast cancer. Some of her very close friends have started a Go Fund Me page (https://www.gofundme.com/deannjuliano) to help her cover the cost of treatments and living expenses since the loss of her riding income.

We all have DeAnn in our prayers and hope that the positive prognosis that her doctors have given holds true. As of today, she has undergone four of her six chemotherapy treatments and still faces radiation, surgery and another round of treatments that will last another eleven months. We all know DeAnn is an incredibly strong and determined spirit and we know she will conquer this.

Thanks for all that you do, DeAnn! You are such a blessing to our association, community and industry.

This month we feature a rising star within the American Recovery Association, Brent Hoel from Charleston, West Virginia. As a third-generation ARA member, Brent has grown up in the industry, attending conventions with his father and getting ready to take the reins of the family business. After graduating from Fairmont State University with a business degree, he has continued to build on a strong legacy with his memberships in YPRC, TFA and Eagle Group XX. As one of the first members of YPRC, he recognizes the responsibility and opportunities ahead for his generation: “I’m trying to become more hands on, since we are going to be the ones in the positions to make changes and decisions. I’ve been around these organizations for so long, but never really had a voice.”

1fb1977e-a1b1-467f-acbd-48e04a1c1422Senior year in high school is a stressful time for young adults. They are trying to determine the right career path for themselves, pass their senior-level classes, get ready for college, find the perfect prom date and enjoy as much of their senior year as possible. For most kids at that age, volunteering doesn’t exactly fit into their social calendars. Savanna Price however, is different than most.

Savanna, the daughter of ARA member Alex Price, has a true passion for volunteering and is a natural-born leader. She is a member of the service club at Mobile Christian High School where she helps host food drives to benefit local shelters and participates in a walk-a-thon to help raise money and awareness for breast cancer. Savanna is also a member of the Fellowship of Christian Standards group as well as the National Honor Society. A prestigious accolade to add to Savanna’s long list of accomplishments was her selection to be an Oakleigh Belle. In a program run by the city of Mobile’s Historic Society, Oakleigh Belles spend 30+ hours memorizing Mobile’s rich history and present at city events. Savanna was one of 17 girls chosen out of 2,000 applicants to get to don the traditional antebellum dresses.

1595a54d-b2a7-49b2-9e86-0e2a10198088The Rust family sure has something to brag about – Tyler Rust, the son of Double Eagle Services’ Tim Rust, has been named an Udall Scholar. The Udall Foundation awards prestigious scholarships to five college sophomores and juniors for their commitment to issues related to American Indian nations and the environment.

“Because tribal public policy is heavily dependent upon maintaining tribal lands, a solid background in earth sciences will help me not only to understand tribal environmental issues but also to help solve them,” said Rust.

Tyler is currently a junior studying geology and geospatial technology at the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology. He entered this particular field of study to protect and develop tribal public policies with an eye to environment concerns, sustainability and stewardship of the land. Tyler will be spending the summer studying in Turkey.

We are incredibly proud of Tyler and the work he is doing.
