2021 & 2022 Volunteers of the Year 

In recognition the extraordinary efforts and partnership during the 2021 & 2022 school years.

Colleen Ramsey

North Londonderry Elementary School

Colleen's efforts are nothing short of herculean. Despite being a mother of 3 and training for marathons, Colleen volunteered over 105 hours during the '21-'22 school year. Colleen volunteered for our Fall Harvest, multiple Book Fairs, spearheaded our 5th Grade T-Shirt program, helped sell spirit sticks, and led the effort to create our 5th Grade yearbooks. Aside from those direct contributions, Colleen spent time documenting activities she completed in the past and guiding new volunteers that picked them up.

While accomplishing all of that, Colleen still made time to attend PTA meetings every month,  operated with the best attitude, and was incredibly selfless with her time. She is, without a doubt, an amazing asset to our volunteer team.

Nancy Lundquist

  Memorial Elementary School

As the school’s Volunteer Coordinator, Nancy contributes countless hours ensuring the school delivers great experiences for the students, teachers and families.  It is a very heavy lift to secure dozens of volunteers to execute the many different programs and she does it with a smile.  Nancy is always there to step in and help and makes sure volunteers feel equipped to also provide support and enjoy their experience.  Nancy communicates with all, ensuring the school administration is up to speed as well as the various volunteers and the district Parent Teacher Group.

Gene Watson

Portsmouth Christian Academy

Mr. Watson clocked in at just over 2,000 hours for the 21-22 school year. Not only does he volunteer to lead in several areas  such as; Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Father's in Prayer for our students' fathers, baseball coach, community building events, a small group for middle school male students, he also arrives early and patrols daily as volunteer security for PCA. Gene displays a "SECURITY" magnet on his pickup, has installed several security cameras and responds to multiple radio calls a day for small to large staff, faculty and student needs. In addition, Gene has helped raise funds for our tuition program by donating, "security for a day" and chaperoning students around as they act and play the part of security. He directs traffic in and out of the school and drives the buses. He continued all of this while COVID took place and without him, we could not have carried on as usual. The students did not feel the full weight of COVID much due to Mr. Watson's service. In all honesty, Gene is more than a volunteer of the year as he has been volunteering for PCA for the last 18 years and his first (and maybe last) Volunteer Award was from his daughters preschool teacher. She gave him the "scissors award" for all the cutting he did for the classroom that year. As you can see, he has been a dedicated father and volunteer and we could not have done the last two COVID years without him.
