Diane Bauer

This week's winner of the High's Hero Award, celebrating people who are making an eternal difference, is Diane Bauer.

I don't know Diane very well at all. I think that's mostly because she is one of the quietest servants I have ever observed in my life. She has to be one of the most humble, patient people God has ever created.

For many years I have watched as she quietly, without any fanfare or recognition, taught special needs children during Sunday School at Brentwood Hills. She has a little corner of the teen area with paints, markers and other crafts. Occasionally you will see her walking through the gym with one of her students.

I know Diane has a heart for the downtrodden of life. I have heard about how she has gone the extra mile for people in the inner city trying to help meet their basic needs.

Diane has raised an incredible daughter, Fawn, who is obviously following in her mother's footsteps.

I am thankful to have people like Diane in my life. She is making an eternal difference but doing so without a ray of spotlight.
