Once a month, Volunteer Services recognizes an Exceptional Volunteer at the Spotlight on Success Ceremony. They are nominated by teachers, administrators, librarians, etc. The recipient for April is Ms. Joy Thym from Donner Springs Elementary.
Joy was nominated by Richard Medley, the Site Facilitator at Donner Springs. Joy has been volunteering at Donner Springs for over 8 years. She volunteers about 4 hours a week in the classroom and also helps chaperone field trips. Joy does projects with the students, reads with the students, supports them 1:1 as needed with their assignments, and also brings snacks! Joy always has a smile on her face and loves working with the children. Former students have even come back looking for her because she has made such an impact on them.
