The resolution, sponsored by Memphis City Council Member Janis Fullilove, calls Ms. Boone “a woman of tremendous character, whose life is devoted to work, civic duty and helping others....” The resolution especially recognizes Ms. Boone’s organizing of a “Help Haiti” fundraising event on January 14th; just two days after an earthquake devastated the Caribbean island.” It also recognizes Ms. Boone’s volunteer work with the Juvenile Court’s CASA program, Hope House, Ronald McDonald House and many other Mid-South civic and charitable organizations.
