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.
