January Volunteer of the Month

Jan 8, 2014

Every month we gather as a staff to select our Volunteer of the Month. With so many superstar volunteers it is always a tough choice, yet, each month one person or group stands out above the rest. This month we are pleased to announce David Aylor is our January Volunteer of the Month!

An unassuming high-school student, David Aylor proves age doesn’t necessarily define maturity. After beginning as a volunteer in September, David has fixed himself on Fridays as a volunteer with initiative, consistency, and patience. He has impressed us week after week with his knack for helping our students succeed, whether aiding them in arts and crafts, or on ice for for the first time (pictured below).

David, we’re grateful for your service. Thanks for showing us what a true volunteer looks like!
