This year's recipients are:

  • Elementary Volunteer of the Year: Madeleine Names, Carson Elementary School
  • Secondary Volunteer of the Year: Julie Stout, Emerald Ridge High School
  • Volunteer Coordinator of the Year: Cheryl Vincent, Hunt Elementary School

More than 5,000 parents and community members are signed up as Puyallup School District volunteers this year.

An engraved plaque will be presented to each of the honorees, as well as to each of their school principals to hang in the buildings. Their names will also be engraved on a plaque in the lobby at the Education Service Center.
