Longtime Rosecrance board member Peg Wilkerson received special recognition for her volunteer service during the National Association for Addiction Treatment Providers annual conference in Florida.
Wilkerson and singer-songwriter John Hiatt were honored with Caron’s Dr. Jasper G. Chen See Volunteer Leadership Award. The award recognizes people who have provided exceptional volunteer leadership in the area of addiction treatment through board membership and philanthropy.
Wilkerson has been a Rosecrance board member since 1992; at the time, she helped navigate a merger between Rosecrance and another addiction-treatment center she’d been a board member for since 1984. She is the senior vice president of business banking at Alpine Bank in Rockford and uses her financial expertise by serving as the Rosecrance Health Network board treasurer and finance committee chairman. Rosecrance celebrates its 100thanniversary this year, and Wilkerson also serves as a 100thAnniversary Committee member.
