"She's not an unsung hero. She's a hero who has been in plain sight in our community. But, because she's so effective, she always reflects back the glory on others. And she never seeks the limelight ... When you live in this community , you really deeply appreciate the people who make it a better place ... Renee has brought such beauty and such joy and such depth to our community."
