Martina Young (right) looks at a giant check being held by Barb Hancher after Young received the Timothy Hancher Direct Services Staff Award, presented by Bill and Barb Hancher during Pathfinder Services' annual Community Recognition Dinner on Saturday, Nov. 3. The Hanchers present the award annually, in memory of Bill Hancher's son, to a Pathfinder employee who works directly with clients. Young, manager of a Pathfinder group home in Huntington, was nominated for working with a Pathfinder client, outside of her normal responsibilities to help that client improve her self-worth, even connecting the woman with Young's mother as a pen pal and bringing her home for the holidays.
