"In California where people lost everything, I was glad to be able to help in some way. I'm not looking for a pat on the back." Memories of living in Tescott during a bad flood when she was younger brings home the difficult reality of natural disasters. The American Red Cross provided training in disaster relief, as well as first aid and CPR. Travel expenses and food are paid while she's in the field. Most of her stints as a relief worker have lasted two to three weeks. DeWitt is a recent graduate of Brown Mackie College with degrees in accounting and business management. She has a 9- year-old daughter. One of her greatest rewards is receiving mail from disaster victims she has met on her trips. "A man at the Burbank, (Calif.) service center lost his apartment, the tools of his trade, even his eyeglasses. He was a really nice guy and just couldn't believe I'd come all the way from Kansas to help. He really needed to talk and I just listened — sometimes that's the best thing you can do for people. A few months later, I got a letter from him, telling me how he was getting back on his feet. That made me feel good," she said. The NOVA Award is underwritten by the Bennington State Bank of Salina, the Bank of Tescott, Mid-America Awards, Dillard's Department Store and Western Sizzlin' Steak House.
