A beautiful presentation in memory of Chuck Hoyack was provided by his family. Chuck was an extraordinary member of the community. Chuck was the Dean of Cochise College, actively volunteered in over 30 organizations and was Chair of the Board of ACF, Cochise, until he lost his battle with brain cancer almost a year ago.
Nonprofits across the county were recognized for the work they do in each of their communities, often without much appreciation or recognition. Communities are greatly benefited by the services that nonprofit organization provide. We greatly appreciate all the work that you do and the difference you make in the communities you serve.
