Mruk Honored by AARP

Paul Mruk, AARP Driver Safety instructor, and Diahanne VanGulick, Coordinator of the Mruk Family Education Center on Aging, recently accepted a certificate of appreciation presented by Linda Murr, AARP District Coordinator, for the center's "steadfast support of AARP Driver Safety and for exemplifying community leadership of safe driving thereby making streets and neighborhoods safer for all citizens."

Since 2009, the Mruk Family Education Center on Aging has offered AARP Driver Safety, a course designed to help drivers age 50 and older be safer on the road. Participants learn about the effects of aging on drivers and strategies for coping with these changes, and many insurance companies offer reductions for those completing the course. Classes are held the first Monday of each month from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and the fee is $15 for AARP members and $20 for non-members.

AARP Driver Safety program instructor Paul Mruk, a retired Memphis Police Captain who served as a Marine and Air National Guardsman, has been a BRMC volunteer for 13 years. He was a 2010 inductee into the Arkansas Senior Hall of Fame.
