My family has been truly fortunate to be at Meridian since opening day in 2011. It’s one of the best decisions we’ve made. I have been actively volunteering all along the way, but for the last couple of years, I joined the Volunteers In Partnership leadership team serving first as Treasurer, then Vice-President.
For this crazy year, I moved into the role of President. There are perhaps not as many opportunities for volunteering so far, but I'm looking forward to serving when and where possible in the coming months!
The best part of volunteering (other than that it feels good to give) is the parent relationships I have built and will continue to expand for the next nine years until my younger son graduates from Meridian. I am proud to say that I can name families from almost every grade – but only because of volunteering and making those connections.
Please join me and experience our Meridian community at a deeper level the next time you see a volunteer opportunity!
