The Responder of the Year for 2010 was awarded to the late
Mr. Gary Logan
Gary retired from Washtenaw County CMH in the fall of 2009. Despite his retirement, he continued to coordinate the Traumatic Network (TERN) and remained on the Washtenaw CISM team, including recruitment of team members, training, and coordinating responses. This required a considerable amount of effort to maintain communication and often resulted in Gary handling many of the responses himself. Without Gary’s efforts, the TERN team may well have stopped functioning effectively and the regional network would not have been as effective. Gary also maintained his work with Region 2 South as the co-chair of their Mental Health Services Committee and continued to serve on the MCRA Board of Directors.
