Volunteer of the Year 2019

Jen Catherine

Jen has been incredibly generous with her time over the past 3 years.  She has taken on several behind the scenes positions- equally as important as Event Chairs- but out of the limelight.  She is never one for public praise or acknowledgements, instead preferring to quietly fulfill her roles.  Don’t be fooled – she is a creative force with incredible ideas and a “how can I help attitude” – every single time.

We’ve become accustomed to many of these items just getting done – without question.  The Book Room is a year round commitment that requires countless appreciative hours!  This role is critical to our teachers as we pull/reshelf books – every single week.  As the chair, you need to fill the shifts and/or fill in when parents cancel.  She has held this role for 2 years and has made it seamless to all.

PTO Bulletin Board is updated monthly – and not just updated with dates.  There is ALWAYS a theme – which attracts students, teachers and parents to “stop by”!  The Bulletin Board is meant to support and celebrate the PTO.  Her “inner teacher” gets to come out and she leaves her creative mark every single month.

Finally, we all know that Silent Auction takes an army to execute.  There is a very silent but devoted individual who was an integral part of organizing our silent auction.  She spent countless hours over 2 months picking up donated items from local businesses, wrote 150+ bid sheets and was a trusted, reliable partner during Silent Auction set-up.

For these reasons, and so many more, I am so honored to award Jen Catherine with the Walnut Creek Elementary Volunteer of the Year award!
