Canine Companions® has had dedicated volunteers for 45 years, but for the past 20 years, we’ve been honoring outstanding volunteerism through the prestigious Jack Warnock Award. Each year, volunteers are nominated from our six regions. We are proud to name Chris Newbern as the recipient of the 20th Jack Warnock Award. Learn how Chris and the five National Board of Directors Regional Volunteer Award winners have made a tremendous impact on our mission.
