I have known Guy Van Ort for several years since first serving with him on the Tucker Civic Association’s (TCA) board. We have worked together on many projects and have become friends over the years.
Guy held the position of Give an Hour chair for TCA, a program that identified and provided a number of services in Tucker, including cleaning up school yards, cemetery cleanup, painting fire hydrants, collecting food for the fire department, and providing holiday meals for the police department. And Guy has done much to support Midvale Elementary School and the neighborhood he lives in.
He has worked tirelessly on the Yellow Dot project for the Tucker Civic Association’s Lifelong Community Committee. A Georgia Department of Health and Human Services program that can save resident lives by helping first responders efficiently gather medical information in the critical moments following an automobile crash or a medical emergency in the home. Tucker was the first city asked to roll out the program.
Guy’s calm and confident manner has been invaluable as the Lifelong Community committee works through the necessary steps to complete the Age Friendly Tucker action plan that will be submitted to the World Health Organization in December. He focuses on detail and works around the obstacles. He is an asset for us and for Tucker.
