Volunteer Alonzo Jarrett wins United Way award

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!

2013 ed vol of the year

L to R: Anne Choyce, Brainerd High advisor; Alonzo Jarrett, volunteer; Kate Skonberg, volunteer coordinator

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!
