Volunteer of the Month

Thank you, Catherine – UMCHS Volunteer of the Month for December, 2016

Catherine has been a wonderful volunteer in one of our UMCHS classrooms. She came in super excited to learn how our program works and always asks a lot of questions to help herself become a quality volunteer.  She has been a very dedicated volunteer and has also completed bus monitor training to provide even more assistance to our staff!  Catherine completed her volunteer orientation as well as getting her food handlers card/certification.  Throughout the day Catherine will ask the staff “how can I help you, what do I need to do?” and for that we are very grateful!
