Guam - Sister Brigid Perez was recognized by the Guam Legislature during a ceremony in Hagatna this morning. Senator Aline Yamashita presented Sister Brigid with a resolution for her work to strengthen our families and for her role as a leader in our community.
She thanked her for nearly 60 years of service and fait, "She is a pioneer in our community, a trailblazer for all of Guam's children and families." She added, "I think it's part of my upbringing that we give back to the people you know we help one another because there is a dire need to help our fellow brothers and sisters."
Sister Brigid has worked with families in the CNMI, Rota and Tinian. For over ten years she's served as the program manager for the Alee Shelter and continues to serve our island's children at St. Anthony's Catholic School in Tamuning.
