Jody Walker: PARDS
PARDS would like to nominate Jody Walker. Jody has been volunteering with PARDS in the barn for the past year. She is part of mother/son team who is very dependable and a pleasure to have with us. Jody is very versatile, coming each week to be in the barn, but at a moment’s notice can jump into a lesson when needed. Jody is a great advocate for volunteering at PARDS as she has brought on other youth to work with her and her son, Hunter while providing a positive role model for them and others in the barn. Thank you for all you do Jody!
