native Kurdistan. Aware currently lives in Sioux Falls, where he serves as the Executive Director of the Multi-Cultural Center.He
visited the Human Services Center on May 18, to help patients and staff gain increased awareness of cultural differences and an understanding of cultural diversity.
In 1974, Aware was 18 years old and living in Kurdistan, when he
spoke out against the Iraqi government."I was kicked out of high school and felt my dreams die.I had hoped to finish high school, to attend college," Aware said.His goal was to further his education, possibly become a doctor or lawyer, so he could help his people. He
came home and found all of his
family present.They had gathered to say farewell but Aware still did not know that he
had to leave.

Lois Halbur, another active volunteer member in the Yankton community, nominated Saunders for the award.
Halbur got to know Saunders through 4H and said she is deserving of the award. â€œHer caring nature extends from people to pets,â€� Halbur said. â€œShe's very musically gifted, family oriented and cares deeply about children and giving them a brighter future.
She's what I would consider an outstanding model for high quality, selfless volunteerism.â€� Halbur also nominated Saunders when she received the United Way Volunteer of the Month Award.
Saunders said she was surprised to receive the Volunteer of the Month award and never dreamed she would be named the Volunteer of the Year. â€œWhen they were announcing who would receive the Volunteer of the Year award, they listed numerous activities that everyone is involved with,â€� Saunders said. â€œI was shocked to receive the award.â€� Halbur said she was surprised to see how much work Saunders does for many organizations. â€œShe could have spent the hours of volunteer service in so many different ways but she spent it in selfless service for the betterment of our community and that was very inspiring to us,â€� Halbur said.
Saunders involvement with the Court Appointed Special Advocates For Children also inspired Halbur.
