-- Wives Behind the Badge, Inc. awards Michelle Romanowski of Oregon as Forums Staff Member of the Year, and Nancy Silva of Massachusetts as Forums Big Sister of the Year.
Michelle has been a member of the Wives Behind the Badge forums since August 2010. She has filled staff positions as Forums Big Sister and Forums Moderator and in 2013 was promoted to Forums Big Sister Coordinator. Michelle credits Wives Behind the Badge staff members and forum members for making the transition to such a prestigious role a smooth one. With the help of many Wives Behind the Badge members, she was easily able to understand how to run the Big Sister program and lead it in a bigger direction with innovative ideas.
Aside from the work that goes into the forums, Michelle has extended her law enforcement family beyond bounds she ever thought possible. “I’ve gained new friendships that I hold dear to my heart,” Michelle said. Michelle is looking forward to making 2014 an even greater year and Wives Behind the Badge supports her every step of the way.
Nancy has been a member of our forums since March of 2012. Nancy fills dual roles as Forums Big Sister and Moderator. Some of her duties include checking in with forum members to answer questions, and readily offering assistance when necessary. She constantly devotes her extra time to helping others through our forums.
Nancy is appreciative of the friendships she has made through the Big Sister program. This past year, she was astonished when she received an outpouring of concern and support after the tragic Boston Marathon bombings happened in her home state. Nancy shares that the forums have given her the opportunity to create “sisterhood[
s] like no other, and I am so very happy to be a part of the WBTB family.” Wives Behind the Badge appreciates every selfless second Nancy puts forward to make our forum members feel welcomed.
Thank you Michelle and Nancy for your unmatched commitment to Wives Behind the Badge. To find out how to become part of our forums, register today on our website: www.wivesbehindthebadge.org
