Collier County State Committee Woman Jan Face Glassman has been awarded the Pacesetter Award by the local Collier Pace Center.
Marianne Kearns, M. Ed, Executive Director for the Collier Chapter said, “Jan is an amazing connector and advocate. She teaches me how to advocate! Since I have known Jan and that possibly could be 7 to 9 years, I have been in Immokalee for 9… She has included me and Pace into a political scene that I would not otherwise experience.
Her connections have led to amazing experiences and opportunities in Washington DC. Pace Collier is the only Pace that takes girls to Washington DC as a reward field trip. On several of the trips she has met us there but more than that, we have had meetings with the speaker of the house or his staff. We have had lengthy meetings with our Florida politicians. We have had access into the White House.
She also helps with Love That Dress which is our major fundraiser. She has been volunteering at the event for many years and now serves on the committee.
She also had a vision for more Pace outreach and shares our mission instead of Naples that I cannot reach.
Lastly she brings people to the Pace Center for tours on her own time. This furthers our mission!
