Sandy Dekker Award


Congratulations to Kathy Van Maren, our 2019 Sandy Dekker Award winner! There are many attributes of a Sandy Dekker recipient. We've listed a few here. Kathy encompasses all of these characteristics so well--and more!

  • A friend to all Choral-Aires without regard to race, creed, status or finance
  • A true and genuine smile that she shares often and freely
  • A tireless worker, whether chairing an event or just cleaning up
  • A strong faith that others admire
  • A caring for others that transcends her concern for herself

All of these and more were true of Sandy and we are thrilled to honor her legacy by recognizing others that are as outstanding as she was.
