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 presented to MCCW members who exhibit 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 presented to regional MCCW members who exhibit selfless service and outstanding support in furthering the goals and mission of MCCW-Worldwide.  In addition, they consistently bring harmony to the communities in which they live and worship.
