Diana Goodwin of Morton Plant Hospital was inducted into the Clearwater All American Sertoma Club.

Louis A. Corona II received the 2013 Crime Victim Service Award from Springtime Club during its second annual National Crime Victims' Rights Week Candlelight Vigil Services and Civil Liberties Awards ceremony on Saturday at the Springtime Elks Lodge No. 592 in Clearwater.

Corona retired this year from the Clearwater Police Department, where he served in the Criminal Investigations Unit as a social services specialist and victims advocate. He was honored for his assistance to victims, outreach to the families of murder victims and efforts to find ways of funding services and financial restoration for crime victims.

Every April, the Office for Victims of Crime helps lead communities throughout the country in their annual observances of National Crime Victims' Rights Week by promoting victims' rights and honoring victims and those who advocate on their behalf. The Office for Victims of Crime is a component of the U.S. Department of Justice.
