Skagit Regional Health volunteers receive the President’s Volunteer Service Award

Eleven volunteers from Skagit Regional Health were recently awarded the President’s Volunteer Service Award for their service commitment to the organization and community. This is the first year Skagit Regional Health has been certified to award this honor.

The President’s Volunteer Service Award was founded by the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation to recognize the important role of volunteers in America, honoring the positive impact their service makes in communities around the nation. Led by the AmeriCorps, this program allows certified organizations to annually recognize their outstanding volunteers.

To qualify for this prestigious award, volunteers must have completed at least 100 volunteer hours of their time in the past year to Skagit Regional Health. This year, eleven Skagit Regional Health volunteers were recognized. One award ceremony was held at Skagit Valley Hospital on December 5 and the second ceremony was held at Cascade Valley Hospital on December 6.

Each awardee received a personalized certificate of achievement and letter signed by President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. They also received a commemorative pin and medal.

The following volunteers were honored for their outstanding service:
