Lisa Snedegar & Jennifer Richmond

At last week’s Children’s Memorial Flag Day event outside the Greenbrier County Courthouse, organizers honored two women who work quietly and diligently behind the scenes to help vulnerable children.

Jennifer Richmond was honored as an outstanding foster parent and the founder of NOAH (Now Our Angels Are in Heaven), a nonprofit she started after her child was killed which she uses to help other families enduring that same trauma.

Lisa Snedegar was also honored for her dedicated career of service to children in the Family Resource Network, Communities in Schools, the Child Youth & Advocacy Center, and Greenbrier County Schools. She often serves as the connection between available resources and families in need across the county.

For their commitment to our most vulnerable children, we are proud to name Lisa Snedegar & Jennifer Richmond as the certified Real West Virginians of the Week.
