Nicolás Fund for Education posthumously honored Barney Reynolds with the 2016 Pioneer Award in gratitude for his vision, inspiration, planning and hard work.
Barney Reynolds’ daughter-in-law, Heidi Reynolds, and her daughter, Erin, traveled from California to attend the event and receive this award on behalf of the Reynolds family. Both Heidi and Erin, and Barney’s son, Mike, were part of the NFE February 2015 and 2016 teams and have seen first-hand the fruits of their father’s labor.
NFE Board member, Becci Merritt, presented several examples of the powerful influence Barney had on developing the original Journey with a Village program and as a Board member for Nicolás Fund for Education.
Barney was a talented cartoonist that illustrated JWAV teaching handbooks for prevention of communicable disease as well as dental hygiene. He was a truly renaissance man!
