2017 Volunteer Hall of Fame Event

The District introduced members of the 2017 Volunteer Hall of Fame at a special event on April 24. The outstanding volunteers represent each school’s volunteer workforce where some 7,000 community members contributed more than 137,000 hours in support of students and staff during the last school year.

“Our volunteer workforce includes parents, retirees, students, business professionals, and other community members who generously give of their time and talents,” said Marcia Hughes, Community Relations Supervisor. “Last year, some 7000 school volunteers recorded over 137,000 hours of service in support of students. This is about the same as our having paid 128 paraprofessionals to work 6 hours every school day. The contributions made by volunteers are so appreciated!” View images from Event
