Volunteer of the Month

March 2016 Volunteer of the Month - Kathleen Daruda


Congratulations Kathleen!

As the winner of the Tim Hortons Volunteer of the Month draw, Kathleen has won a brand new Tim Hortons Coffee brewer! The staff and board of the GPVSB thank our sponsors at Tim Hortons for helping us fuel the volunteers of Grande Prairie one cup of coffee at a time, or in Kathleen's case 10 cups of coffee in just 3 mins!
Here's a look back at Kathleen's Volunteer of the Week nomination.
The Grande Prairie Council for Lifelong Learning would like to nominate our volunteer tutor Kathleen Daruda. Kathleen has been volunteering her time as a tutor at the Grande Prairie Council for Lifelong Learning since October 2015. Currently, she teaches one of our EAL (English as an Additional Language) students in addition to making sure her student is aware of special events and services in the community with the purpose of exposing her learner to Canadian culture. Kathleen attends all of our EAL workshops so that she can help her learner succeed. Thank you Kathleen for your continuous support and dedication!
