Volunteer veteran


Principal Rick Fleming presents the 2015 Jefferson Award to Margarita Cruz-Sanchez for her hours spent doing volunteer work. “I am a teacher’s assistant at my church, I volunteer at the zoo, I do mission trips at places like Honduras, and I work at the local hospital,” Cruz-Sanchez said. “I’d never heard of [the award] at all. It was such a surprise, my hands were shaking. I didn’t believe that I was getting recognized for [my volunteer work].” Cruz-Sanchez said she still has many hours of volunteer work ahead of her.
