Lorton's Shep Crow Named Community Champion for the Mount Vernon District

Ask him to do something and he gets it done.

Lorton's Shep Crow was honored with a Community Champion award at the 21st Anniversary Fairfax County Volunteer Service Awards on Thursday. The Awards were held at the Waterford at Springfield.

"I do appreciate it and the fact that Supervisor Hyland recognized me," said Crow. "I'm still going to keep on pushing."

Mount Vernon District Supervisor Gerry Hyland nominated Crow for the award. 

"He's a premier volunteer. I know few people in our community who are as dedicated as Shep," he said. "He looks around and sees what needs to be done and then turns around and does it. He's the best."
