I am so excited to announce that one of our volunteers, Alonzo Jarrett, won the Volunteer of the Year Award in Education on Tuesday at the Volunteer United Banquet!
Please take a moment to watch this very brief video below about his service at Brainerd High School (his portion begins at 2:06).
In a Times Free Press article on Wednesday, Alonzo spoke humbly about his work: “When I was volunteering, I never thought of winning,” he said. “Obviously it’s nice to know it doesn’t go unnoticed. But hopefully, [volunteering] will catch on to others. That’s what’s most important.”
We are so thankful for Alonzo’s service to our students!
