The Reverend James C. Holt Awards
Hospice Care of Southwest Michigan was founded by Rev. James C. Holt of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church. The James C. Holt Award is presented each year to recognize colleagues who demonstrate, through their volunteerism, a willingness to extend themselves for the purpose of helping others find peace at the end of life.
The Holt Award has been presented each year since 1989 to a volunteer who serves primarily home care clients and to one serving at Rose Arbor. Each recipient exemplifies the committed, compassionate community “neighbor” that Rev. Holt saw as so vital to our agency’s success.
