Awards and Recognition

By: Denise Hummel, Forum Awards and Recognition Chair

MCCW recognizes the time, talents, and treasures of women who lovingly serve our organization. Two women who have gone before us and significantly impacted the formation of MCCW are Sheila Baker and Mary Ann Ernst. Two awards have been created in memory of these ladies: the Sheila Baker Award for Outstanding Achievement and the Mary Ann Ernst Regional Harmony Award. Both awards recognize selfless service to MCCW.  Applications are now being accepted and will be recognized at our rescheduled Forum gathering.  

Sheila Baker 

Sheila Baker’s involvement with MCCW began in the early 1970s. She worked tirelessly at all levels of MCCW— from the chapel level, at the area now reorganized as the regional level, and on to the national level. Sheila was President of MCCW-Europe for two terms in the early 1990s. Sheila was a true leader and role model. She was a mentor and friend of MCCW for nearly thirty years.

In order to honor Sheila and her memory, this award is to be presented to members of MCCW who have exhibited enduring and outstanding support and accomplishments in furthering the goals and mission of MCCW-Worldwide.

Mary Ann Ernst

Mary Ann Ernst was a selfless servant and a unifying leader. She was a mentor and friend to MCCW for more than 20 years. Mary Ann’s involvement with MCCW began when she started worshiping in military chapels. She worked tirelessly at all levels of MCCW — at the chapel and regional levels, as well as on the MCCW-Worldwide board of directors.

In order to honor Mary Ann and her memory, this award is to be presented to members of MCCW’s regions who have exhibited selfless service and outstanding support in furthering the goals and mission of MCCW-Worldwide and in bringing harmony to the communities in which she has lived and worshiped.
