Exceptional Volunteers to be honored for service to students, staff, schools
They work with students on reading, math and other important skills.  They take care of mundane tasks like copying and filing, so teachers can focus on teaching.  They serve on countless committees and organize events ranging from book fairs to fundraisers.  But most of all, they provide inspiration and support to students and staff in every Cherry Creek school every day of the year.  They are the Cherry Creek School District’s 2012 Exceptional Volunteers; parents and grandparents, businesspeople and retirees, who volunteer thousands of hours annually in Cherry Creek schools.
“These remarkable people support our goal of academic achievement and success for all students by giving generously of their time and talents,” said Superintendent Mary Chesley.  “They also set a wonderful example of volunteerism and community service for our students.”
Sixty-two outstanding volunteers will be honored by the Cherry Creek School District and Parents’ Council at the 2012 Exceptional Volunteer Event, which will be held from 5:30 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, April 19, at the Hyatt Regency Denver Tech Center.  Each honoree will receive the Wendy DeBell Exceptional Volunteer Award, named after long-time volunteer and former Board of Education President Wendy DeBell.
Every elementary, middle and high school in the district, along with some district committees, nominated an Exceptional Volunteer. 
Meadow Point Elementary honored Wilson Croom; “Every week, rain, snow or shine, for the past five years, Wilson has been supporting and mentoring our students.”  Village East Elementary recognized Elizabeth Dominguez; “Elizabeth has devoted countless hours to working one-on-one with third graders to help them build a strong foundation in math.”  Anita Corwin is the 2012 Exceptional Volunteer from West Middle School.  “Since Anita stepped foot in West, she has given her time and enthusiasm to chair three positions:  hospitality, promotions, and nominating.  Every West student has benefitted in some way by her inability to “just say no!”
