Evelyn Cook, who is celebrating her 20th year as a volunteer with the AARP Tax-Aide program, was recently presented a plaque in recognition of her service to the program.

Up until 1996 Cook prepared taxes the old fashioned way – by hand.

During her volunteer service she has been an instructor as well as a counselor. In 1996 the IRS introduced the Tax-Aide program using computers. Cook wasn’t sure she wanted to be involved with the technology and almost quit.

But instead, showing great courage and bravery, she pursued learning all about the new computers and has been completing tax returns with the computers ever since.

All her colleagues wish her the best and hope she continues to be their inspiration.
