By Special to the Monitor

AARP New Mexico honored Robert Nunz of Los Alamos as a 2008 Andrus Award Nominee.

The annual Andrus Award is named for Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus who founded AARP. The award honors those who exemplify her spirit of giving back to others. It is bestowed on outstanding AARP volunteers who make a powerful difference in their communities, in ways that support AARP’s vision of community service and inspire others to volunteer.

Nunz was recognized during AARP New Mexico’s Annual Volunteer Recognition Conference and Awards Banquet held Nov. 18 at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Albuquerque.

Nunz, who is the current president of the Los Alamos AARP Chapter, has organized many community presentations by professionals in the healthcare field as well as the financial and legal arenas.

Nunz takes AARP members to visit the state Legislature each year so they can address issues and concerns directly with their elected representatives.

He also advocates for a number of programs that improve and benefit the community such as affordable housing and master planning. Under his leadership, the Los Alamos Chapter has grown from 12 members to 221. Nunz also serves on other organizations such as the Betty Ehart Senior Center and the Los Alamos Retired Service Organization.
