Health System Brunswick Auxiliary Names Toler Volunteer of the Quarter

BRUNSWICK, Georgia: Dec. 12, 2011–Darryl Toler, the most recent past president of the Southeast Georgia Health System Brunswick Campus Auxiliary, was named the organization’s latest Volunteer of the Quarter at the Auxiliary’s quarterly luncheon held Thursday, Dec. 1, on the Brunswick Campus.

Toler, who to date is the only male to ever serve as the Auxiliary’s president, traveled the world as a Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) special agent for 26 years. After serving in such far-flung locales as Okinawa, the Philippines, a Mediterranean-based aircraft carrier, and Iceland, the North Carolina native received his final assignment at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Brunswick. Once in Brunswick, he and his wife and fellow Auxiliary volunteer Joyce Toler decided to put down permanent roots. After Toler retired in December 1993 as a professor of criminal justice from what is now the College of Coastal Georgia, he decided he needed to stay active by becoming a volunteer.

Toler volunteers in the Volunteer Office each Tuesday morning. In addition to volunteering and fulfilling his duties as Auxiliary president, he is a life deacon and Sunday school teacher at the First Baptist Church of Brunswick.

“Darryl is a tremendously dedicated volunteer who serves wherever he is needed,” said Kristin Doll, director of volunteer services. “His leadership skills and passion for helping others are a powerful combination, making him an excellent choice as the Fall 2011 Volunteer of the Quarter. Volunteers, from teenagers to seniors, work throughout the Health System at both the Brunswick and Camden campuses, as well as the Senior Care Centers in Brunswick and St. Marys.
