Today, Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart honored 15 school volunteers at the youth, adult and senior levels with the Outstanding School Volunteer Award. This annual award is presented to students and adults who donate their time to enhance further the hard work taking place in Florida’s K-12 public education system.
Our own volunteer, Mrs. Val Walsh, was honored among the 15!
“Our state’s educators rely on volunteers of all ages and backgrounds to assist in the classroom and with school-wide events,” said Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart. “I am proud to honor these individuals and all school volunteers who have dedicated selflessly countless hours to making Florida schools great places to receive an education. I applaud their efforts, and I hope they will serve as an inspiration to their fellow Floridians to make a difference in local schools.”
Awardees will receive a congratulatory letter from Commissioner Stewart and a mounted certificate. The list of award recipients and a brief summary of their service is posted at Outstanding School Volunteers.
Congratulations and well-deserved, Val!
