Marty Paulk Cheerleader Awards
2014 Winner Jan Smith.

   Dr. Jan Smith was the recipient of the Marty Paulk Cheerleader Award for 2014, and, honestly, she could have been the recipient on any given year as she has been a true cheerleader for GERL for many, many years.
   I remember years ago when she was in charge of the GERL auctions. She orchestrated a huge live auction at the Gwinnett Civic Auditorium, with the help from her office staff. It was a pretty big deal. Mickey Farmer was the auctioneer and there were some great auction items to be had. In fact, there was so many items that it lasted for hours. She raised thousands of dollars for GERL and left a BIG pair of shoes to fill when she retired from doing the auctions. In years even previous to that she was buying stock trailers for the GDA or computers, or whatever they needed to get the Equine program going.
   Today, Jan continues to support GERL in so many ways. She is notorious for providing us with all of the beautiful Coach and Dooney & Bourke purses for our auctions, not to mention art work, condos to Vail Colorado and Disney World. Many of the auction items we had for the Rescue Challenge came from Jan. She was also instrumental in helping us out financially with the Rescue Challenge by donating the money for the winners.
   She prefers to stay in the background and never wants public recognition for her generosity. In fact, I know that when she reads this article she will probably want to choke me! (Just kidding!) She is one of the most generous and loyal cheerleaders that GERL has had the good fortune to attract so many years ago and, personally, I am so very glad she is part of the GERL team! Congratulations, Jan!
