She gives 40 or more hours each month mak- ing quilts for newborn babies at Central Texas Medical Center. Home Instead, Inc. will donate $500 to each of the state winners' favorite nonprofit orga- nizations and their stories will be posted on the Salute to Senior Service Wall of Fame. In addition, $5,000 will be donated to the national winner's nonprofit charity of choice. The national U.S. judging panel will include the 2012 winner Clark Paradise; Dr. lane E Pot- ter, Chief of Geriatrics and Gerontology at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, repre- senting the Home Instead Center for Successful Aging; Sandy Markwood, CEO of the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging; and Dr. Harry R.
