2022 Recipient: Tina Reimer – $20,000 Award
Tina has a get-it-done energy that will suit her well in her future endeavors. Leadership and volunteering have given Tina confidence in who she is and the skills she has to give back to our community. Her tenacity and grit, drive and passion, are qualities that will support her well in her studies.
Tina is passionate about her work as an educational assistant. She discovered this passion when she began volunteering in high school during her lunch breaks in the Life Skills class. It was during these lunch breaks, while playing games and building relationships with the students that she discovered the beauty of connections with students with disabilities, and the joy in helping them achieve their goals. Tina has a deep love for her students and her work environment as an EA. She desires to meet the many and varied needs of her students.
Our committee carefully considered each applicant’s essay and volunteer history in making our decision.
