Jim Brygger, long-time supporter of the mission of Boys and Girls Home, has shared his expertise, creativity, knowledge and heart with us since 1992, serving as the lead architect on nearly all of our major building projects. For many years, Boys and Girls Home contracted Jim’s services through the firm, Cannon, Moss and Brygger. On every project, he committed himself to learning not only the details of our building, licensing, and codes, but more importantly he committed himself to understanding the specific needs of each of our program areas; thereby influencing the needs of each client accessing care through the agency.
Jim retired from practice a few years ago, but his advice and counsel continued, many times saying with a smile, “I don’t need anything in payment. I just want to continue to help here because your work is important.”
Jim’s generous gifts of time, treasure and talent have positively influenced the quality of our care, the financial health of our agency and the visibility of our work. It is our pleasure to announce the 2016 Volunteer of the Year Award Winner, Jim Brygger.
