The Sun City Community Assistance Network Board of Directors took an unusual step in naming its volunteer of the year for 2016.

An agency, especially Sun City CAN, normally does not give the honor to a sitting board member. But in October the board unanimously voted to name Hugh Duncan, the board’s president, as the agency’s volunteer of the year.

“While it is unusual to select a sitting board member for this honor, the board decided there was no one more deserving of recognition than Hugh Duncan for his years of dedication to this organization,” said Linda Miskimen, Sun City CAN executive director. Mr. Duncan has been active in the community since he and his late wife, Beverly, moved to Sun City from Boise, Idaho in 2002. He is an Episcopal priest and a retired U. S. Navy officer.

His association with Sun City CAN dates back several years prior to his election as board president in 2010. He continues to serve in that capacity.

“ Hugh carries our message when he speaks to community groups, churches and civic clubs,” Ms. Miskimen said. “ His knowledge, experience and expertise in fund raising has been the primary reason for our financial stability and success.”

Mr. Duncan also authors the CAN Connection newsletter and regularly submits articles that are then published in local newspapers. He has also volunteered with the AARP Tax Aide program for 14 years, first as a tax counselor and preparer, and now as a floor manager.

“ Most importantly, Hugh keeps his finger on the pulse of this organization giving direction to make sure SC CAN is focused on our target of ‘Connecting people with resources to enhance their standard of living’” Ms. Miskimen said. “ His efforts continue to benefit those who come to SC CAN needing our help and he is truly appreciated.”
