St. Patrick School applauds volunteers
Brian and Mindy Ball received the highest honor bestowed by St. Patrick School for volunteers, the Meritorious Service Award. St. Patrick Pastor Theodore K. Sill and Principal Jacob F. Froning presented the award at the school’s annual awards program June 4.
“The Meritorious Service Award is presented to the person(s) who have demonstrated a history of service to St. Patrick School,” Froning said.
Mrs. Ball has been a member of the school budget committee and pre-school advisory committee. She has served as bingo treasurer and is a founding commit-tee person for the school’s dinner/auction fundraiser.
Mr. Ball continues to bring the Junior Achievement program to grades 4, 7 and 8 at St. Patrick School.
“Brian does a wonderful job as our Ju-nior Achievement consultant. The students relate to his friendly and informative teaching style. He brings economics to life for our young people,” Froning said.
Ball also was recognized as a critical asset to the dinner/auction, having the responsibility for many of the logistical tasks associated with it.
Sill commented, “We are fortunate to have volunteers with the degree of dedication manifested by Mindy and Brian. They are a true asset to St. Patrick School. We are pleased to have this opportunity to give them the recognition they richly deserve.”
