Some parents just insist on volunteering in their children’s schools. This month’s Volunteer of the Month Award honors one such parent who is generously serving concurrently in multiple children’s schools. Mrs. Angela Ashe, today the Board of Education is pleased to honor you for your dedicated service to our students and school communities.
The commendations from faculty, staff and volunteers of both George Fox Middle and Solley Elementary Schools are uniformly glowing and their independent testimonials that describe Mrs. Ashe’s bountiful contributions are awe-inspiring.
George Fox Volunteer Coordinator, Karen Broseker writes, “To say Angela Ashe is a woman of many talents is putting it mildly. It only requires the slightest mention of a task or a need and she takes care of it immediately.” Math Department Chairperson, Catherine Chisolm agrees. “She selflessly spends hours at the copier, enabling teachers to spend their valuable time focusing on student achievement.” And from Solley Volunteer Coordinator, Kira Reeves: “Over the years, Angela consistently devotes her time and professional talent where ever needed… and, well, with everything!” She helps with picture day, vision and hearing testing and book fairs in both schools. But that’s not all.
Angela serves on the PTO executive boards of both Solley Elementary and George Fox Middle, organizing school-wide events such as the new and very successful fundraisers for the George Fox PBIS program and the PTO. With seeming ease, she efficiently rounds up and inspires other parents to participate in countless school-wide events such as honor-roll parties, fifth-grade graduation celebrations, and Family Fun Days, that she coordinates with energetic dedication and enthusiasm. She has even facilitated meetings amongst community members.
First grade teacher, Mrs. Chilipko credits Mrs. Ashe’s assistance with the Chessie Reading Program with “making a positive impact on the reading levels of our students.” She also writes that Mrs. Ashe is a “very compassionate and giving person…” who “helped a family when they became homeless.”
Mrs. Broseker writes, “As a parent with a spouse in the military who often serves overseas, it is truly amazing how Mrs. Ashe donates so much time and energy to maintain her single goal of service to the students of George Fox Middle and Solley Elementary.” In addition, it’s rumored that Mrs. Ashe also volunteers at Northeast High School, however, there is not enough time today to address her contributions there.
Mrs. Angela Ashe, would you please come forward? With great appreciation, I present this Volunteer of the Month Certificate and Bell to you.
