During the pandemic, she organized more than 14,000 COVID-19 vaccines and arranged home visits for more than 800 people who could not leave their homes. Glass said she feels overwhelmed by the award. “When they first presented it to me, I wasn’t quite sure because what I do for the clinic is from my heart,” she said. “I’ve been there over 11 years, and I really enjoy what we do as a facility. I accept this honor for Highlands Health. I feel good, and it’s very rewarding to know that if I’ve helped just a few people, then I’ve done good.” Glas said she is thrilled to see women being recognized for their hard work. “It’s nice that we as women can contribute to society and do an excellent job, making major decisions that affect a lot of people,” she said. “It’s rewarding to acknowledge the women of our community who need to be recognized for keeping Johnstown flourishing. This is a nice group of women who have devoted their talents and knowledge to benefit our community. I am honored to be associated with them.” Glass was nominated by Maureen Pavlik. “I’ve been at the clinic since 2014, and I’ve seen what she has accomplished and what kind of person she is and how she treats other people with warmth, dignity, and respect, ” Pavlik said. “During the pandemic, some of us who volunteered pulled back, but Francine stayed and helped to keep the clinic open at her own personal risk. She has tremendous accomplishments that have affected our community, and she really is worthy of this honor.” …
