Jerry Evans takes his membership in the Prince Hall Shriners quite seriously.
"When I wear that fez, I wear it with absolute pride," Evans said. "It represents what Shrinerdom is all about."
And to Evans, being a Shriner is about making a difference in his community.
His efforts have been noticed. In 2011, he was named the Deputy of the Year at the Prince Hall Shriners National Convention in Cincinnati.
