Recently, an Everett Youth Commission board member and local pastor received The President’s Lifetime Achievement Award, signed by President Joseph Biden. Pastor Chaplain Myreille Daniel said she was the only Everett resident to receive this prestigious honor in 2022.
This award was based off of 40-plus years of community service that she has been doing for women, youths and young adults and men, feeding and clothing the needy over the years while teaching them life skills and social skills without getting paid or given funding for the past four decades.
“It is particularly hard when you don’t have that financial support but it gives me great joy when someone notices your work and helps out,” Daniel said Monday. “I am thankful that President Biden and Bishop Kirkland and the Small Churches Association saw fit that I receive this award.”
Daniel added she feels humbled, honored and blessed to receive this award.
“I was not expecting this,” Daniel said. “I give honor to my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, because during difficult times He always finds a way to raise you up and let you know – He hears our cries and sees our work.”
Daniel is also a Haitian American Youth Advocate, a mental health clinician and a public notary.
