Alexandra Miller, Brenda George and Peter Yelton will represent Pinellas County Schools in the state competition for Outstanding School Volunteer after being named the youth, adult and senior district winners at the annual awards breakfast Wednesday morning.
The awards ceremony, held at Feather Sound Country Club and sponsored by Achieva Credit Union, recognized the top three winners from each area of the district. The 15 winners represent more than 30,000 volunteers who have volunteered approximately 400,000 hours in classrooms, libraries, field trips, special events and more so far this school year.
On hand to present their awards were Superintendent Kevin Hendrick, School Board chair Lisa Cane, School Board member Carol Cook, Achieva CEO and President Gary Regoli and Director of Strategic Partnerships Dr. Seymour Brown. Erin Murray, the weekend anchor for Spectrum Bay News 9, served as the emcee for the event. Musical entertainment was provided by the Ruth Eckerd CJH Jazz Combo, made up of Pinellas County Schools students and directed by Frank Williams, former jazz band director at Boca Ciega High School.
“On behalf of the Board, thank you for all you do for our district,” Hendrick told the room of volunteers, principals, community liaisons and family members. “Our school communities benefit tremendously from your time.”
The district will continue to celebrate the 15 volunteers through the month of April, Volunteer Appreciation Month, and recognize them at the April 25 School Board meeting.
