The Fauquier Free Clinic has presented its first annual Willey Family Service Awards to Megan Barlowe of Kettle Run High School and Cavan Connolly of Fauquier High School.

These awards recognize and encourage exceptional youth service to the clinic’s patients. The clinic board of directors established the award in 2016 to mark the completion of Joy Willey’s second term as volunteer chairman. Members of the Willey Family of Delaplane have served for years as volunteers at the clinic, in the community and at clinic events.

The Willey Family Service Awards are available to area high school students completing their junior year. Candidates must submit documentation of 25 or more hours of service to the Fauquier Free Clinic patients during the 12-month period ending May 15. Applicants also must submit a one-page essay on the impact of their volunteer experience and what they learned while helping at the free clinic.

Megan Barlowe and Cavan Connolly each worked all year at the clinic and made strong contributions to the program.

In her essay Megan noted: “Everyone works alongside each other from the doctors, specialists, and the nurses to the receptionists, translators and students.”

Cavan stated: “I get to interact with some of the patients and I get to see them receive the help they need . . . . It had an impact on me.”

Clinic Director Rob Marino said, “Megan and Cavan have worked so hard all year. They will do anything we ask of them if it serves the mission, from filing to cleaning to answering phones. Our program depends on people like them finding a way to help.

“I have really enjoyed getting to know them, and I love the example they set for all of us at the clinic. They are exceptional young people and I expect big things from them in the future.”
