Author, photographer, entrepreneur philanthropist recognized for 15 years of community service
The Sedona Village Partnership selected Beverly Copen for its first-ever Shining Star Award, which was presented at a dinner event April 6 at the home of Don and Jan Groves.
The award recognizes significant community achievement and contribution, and honors one of the organization’s founding members, on the eve of her relocation to Rome, Georgia.
Explaining the basis of the award, Vice President and co-founder David Gill said, “She co-founded and was the leader of the Sedona Village Partnership in its beginning years, contributing her own time and talent, and inspiring others. Beverly has worked tirelessly to improve our Village. In my opinion, no single person has had a greater positive impact in the last 15 years than Ms. Beverly herself.”
