Congratulations to Roy Clever, a recent inductee to the Maryland Senior Citizens Hall of Fame. Roy received the honor for the many ways in which he volunteers to help others. He dedicates his time to four principles: God, family, country, and community.
Roy and his wife, Dorothy, are active members of Weller Methodist Church, and, in the past, Roy volunteered for several missions to Costa Rica.
He served as a Marine in the Korean War. In 2011, he was nominated for Town of Thurmont Volunteer of the Year, which is sponsored by the Lions Club. Returning after thirty-four years of teaching and serving as a principal in Frederick County Schools, he now volunteers at the Thurmont Senior Center, where he continues to be an inspiration and mentor to others.
After more than twenty-two years as president of the Board of Directors at the Center, he is currently, as vice president, using his experience to assume responsibility for a variety of legal and financial matters regarding the Center.
Roy has a quiet, thoughtful type of personality. The result is a dependable, resourceful, and kind individual who is always ready to help and volunteer.
He is the third inductee into the Maryland Senior Citizens Hall of Fame from the Thurmont Senior Center.
Roy Clever is shown receiving his Maryland Senior Citizens Hall of Fame Award on October 27, 2016.
