About the Honorees
Northwest Federal Credit Union Foundation – Launching Young Lives
Some 500-plus employees get connected through the Northwest Federal Credit Union Foundation to give of their time and financial resources each year. The team raises tens of thousands of dollars to fund college scholarships, recruits and provides mentors for elementary school children, coordinates food, toy, clothing and school supply drives to meet basic needs of families served by local non-profits, and leverages events and activities to make a difference for kids when they are most vulnerable.
Marybeth Haneline – Engineering Inclusion and Making an Impact
Once, Marybeth was an engineer with a thriving career. She imagined a more meaningful path and devoted herself to young people – her own children and those of others. She has volunteered for and served many local groups that lift up and embrace children and families who are limited in resources, and has laid out a path of opportunity.
Leslie Kane – Revealing the Beauty of Kindness
A child of Reston, Leslie has invested in the community she considers “family”—with love, kindness and the willingness to support others and share her gifts. As a highly successful Mary Kay representative, Leslie takes her well-honed skills and lovely products to vulnerable women who need a reminder of the beauty they possess and the confidence to take that next step in their lives.
Terry Redican – Reston’s Coach for all Seasons
Coach “T” as he is affectionately known to the thousands of athletes whose lives he’s touched is immersed in youth sports year-round. Terry’s values for coaching and volunteering in Reston youth sports are centered on ideals of inclusion and development – he sees the purpose of coaching in the fostering of every child’s potential to its fullest realization.
Andy Sigle – Support that Sings
Andy realized at an early age that it’s vital to individuals and families to have other caring people in their communities to lift them up when life may be overwhelming. The list of organizations for which Andy Sigle volunteers is a wonderful cross-section of the ways that people make Reston an extraordinary—and more harmonious community.
SOSi – Serving Those Who Serve
The team at SOSi extends their energy, time and resources to support veterans and military families and to make a positive difference in the communities where they work and live. From the top down and the bottom up, SOSi people are committed to creating a ripple effect with their volunteer and philanthropic endeavors to support the people their firm serves and the communities where they live and work.
South Lakes High School PTSA Food Pantry –Food from Heart to Heart
The establishment of “The Pantry” at South Lakes High School arose from students’ empathy for those among them struggling to have food security and a Parent/Teacher Student Association’s desire to implement a new approach to solving this critical need for SLHS families. Their impulse to help grew to a full-fledged in-school operation that assures that students whose families struggle to feed everyone have access to nutrition and essential personal items in an anonymous and dignified process.
About Best of Reston
Nearly three decades ago, Cornerstones and the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce came together in a unique collaboration that demonstrates our mutual commitment to the guiding principles of our community established by Reston founder Robert E. Simon and a shared philosophy that the collective contributions of individuals, businesses, civic and community institutions and organizations are necessary to build and sustain thriving and enriching communities. This partnership is celebrated each year in a community awards celebration.
