AARP Hawai`i presented Kaimuki resident Stephen Lung with its 2022 Andrus Award for Community Service, AARP’s most prestigious and visible state volunteer award for community service.
AARP Hawai`i selected Lung for his remarkable service as a volunteer with the Hawaii State Health Insurance Assistance Program, Meals on Wheels, the Policy Advisory Board onElderly Affairs for the Executive Office on Aging, and as a Bishop in his Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints congregation.
His community service greatly benefits his community, reflects AARP’s vision and mission, and inspires other volunteers – the key criteria for the award.
“He helps empower, educate, and assist older adults, their families, friends, and/or caregivers with Medicare related questions. Medicare is complex, confusing, and ever evolving. With Stephen’s assistance he has helped many save money on their health coverage, better utilize their Medicare benefits, and make informed decisions, said Candice Nakamoto, the state health insurance program volunteer coordinator, who nominated him.
Lung wears many hats at the state insurance program, Nakamoto said. He is a counselor to kupuna seeking advice about Medicare, gives presentations to groups, provides information at events, mentors university students taking a Medicare course and trains new volunteers.
The Andrus Award was formally presented to Lung at a ceremony today during AARP Hawai`i’s annual volunteer recognition lunch.
“This award acts as a symbol to the public that we can all work together for positive social change,” said Keali`i Lopez, AARP Hawai`i State Director. “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. The award is named after AARP’s founder, Ethel Percy Andrus.
