LVCA celebrated National Volunteer Week April 18–24 with tutor spotlights, Volunteer Bingo, Volunteer Superlatives, and a Virtual Happy Hour. Here's a quick recap of all that we celebrated:
Caroline and Tamara were named Tutors of the Year. Both women went above and beyond converting to online tutoring, assisting with new tutor training sessions, and were extremely positive during a challenging year.
Dellinda was recognized for 25 years of service! She completed her initial tutor training in 1996 and has changed the lives of countless students ever since. While she's tutored as many as three students at one time, she has worked with her current two students throughout the pandemic.
All three women will have their names displayed on plaques in our office. We look forward to showing them off as soon as we reopen!
Six other tutors were spotlighted throughout the week on social media and our website. Check out the Tutor Spotlight page of our website to meet George, Lakayla, Sue, John, Eunhee, and MaryLewis. We love the variety in their motivations behind volunteering and their advice for new tutors.
Leading up to our Happy Hour, our volunteers were encouraged to play Volunteer Bingo to see how many different ways they have served our organization. Congratulations to Carole for earning a Double Bingo! Other winners included Sara and Nancy.
Lastly, we recognized the following volunteers in our "Superlatives" shoutouts:
