Barrie Herr has been awarded the Sam Woods Award by Long Realty recognizing his numerous community contributions and tireless volunteer efforts which have greatly impacted our community and helped to make it a better place.
This special award is presented annually to a Long Sales Associate who best exemplifies a commitment to the values of community involvement, to “service above self” and whose selfless acts inspire others to create a lasting impact on making our community better for those in need. Such values were the hallmark of one of Long Realty’s most distinguished former members, Sam Woods. Being involved in the community is a selfless act with a commitment to benefit others – a characteristic to be admired. Each year, a donation is made to the Samuel H. Woods Memorial Scholarship Fund in the name of the award recipient to the University of Arizona Foundation for student scholarship.
“Barrie was green before being green was cool!” said Linda Moore, Manager of Long Realty’s River-Campbell office. “He is an exceptional person, always thinking of others first and always going the extra mile, and he is truly deserving to be recognized for his actions.”
