College Community Schools is pleased to announce that Kelly Kunze has been selected to receive the 2021 Governor’s Individual Award for Volunteer Service. Kelly has been a regular volunteer at Prairie Heights since 2005 by volunteering many hours in classrooms and the library. Kelly is always willing to help out wherever there is a need and offer students encouragement and support. Congratulations, Kelly!
Tracy Griffin of T Marie Portraits and the Cedar Valley Marine Corps League Detachment 99 are also being honored as length of service volunteers. Tracy has been the official volunteer photographer at the Eastern Iowa Governor’s Awards for Volunteer Service ceremony for several years. By sharing her photographic talent at the awards ceremony, each recipient receives a picture of them receiving this prestigious award. The Marine Corps League members have presented the United States and State of Iowa flags at the start of the ceremony for many years. Congratulations Tracy and the members of the Cedar Valley Marine Corps League!
We sincerely thank these volunteers for their commitment and dedication to College Community Schools. They will be awarded a certificate by the Governor and Lt. Governor at a ceremony at a date yet to be determined.
