The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors presented the 2010 Barbara Varon Volunteer Award to John Mayer during its Oct. 19 meeting in recognition for his extraordinary service as a volunteer at the George Mason Regional Library.
Since 2007, Mayer has spent more than 440 hours at the volunteering in different capacities. He has taught people to use the Internet and led a weekly conversation group for people who want to practice and improve their English skills. He has also worked with students from Asia, Africa, and Latin America each week.
The award, named to honor the memory of Barbara Varon, former chairman of the Fairfax County Electoral Board, was established to recognize a Fairfax County resident’s dedication to improving the community through volunteer service.
