La Grange’s LeaderShop celebrates volunteers at Legacy Awards

The LeaderShop welcomed more than 150 adult and youth volunteers and their families to the fourth annual Legacy Awards Celebration on July 15.

From July 2013 through June 2014, 400 youth volunteers and 112 adult volunteers gave 15,939.50 volunteer hours throughout the community — a whopping 664 consecutive days of service.

The Legacy Awards go to four organizational volunteers — two adult and two graduating seniors — who have shown how to be a leader through their words and actions. Recipients are not only role models, but serve as an inspiration throughout the community.

The 2014 Legacy Award high school winners include Xavier DelValle of La Grange who began volunteering in 2012 and had dedicated 527.50 hour to his community, and Jasmine Richter of Brookfield who began volunteering in 2009 and has dedicated 802.50 hours to her community and beyond.

Adult winners include Mark Stoll of Western Springs, a board member, tutor and mentor who began volunteering with The LeaderShop in 2012 and has volunteered 250 hours to programs and to the Board of Directors and Jud Carlson, who began volunteering in 2002 and has volunteered 965.75 hours to the After School Tutoring Program.
