Maggie Schultz has volunteered in the library at least once or twice a week, processing books and assisting students. Maggie is a warm-hearted and endearing volunteer and grandmother, who has worked often without recognition. Joan Good affectionately refers to her as “the library ninja.” She comes in and works quietly in the background, often unseen. Sometimes the only way we know that she has been in is by the HUGE stack of stamped and processed books on the carts ready to be shelved. Maggie’s devotion to the library and the students is inspiring, and we are so very thankful for her hard work and dedication.
Party on New Amsterdam, Auction 2017, was true to title in that it was a PARTY! Auction chairs Chad and Kimisha set the vision, but Stephanie Kroth made it a reality. She is energetic and passionate—a creative individual who is a true team player. Stephanie spent countless hours with her committee in her basement, gluing and drilling cardboard and wood and hula hoops and tinsel! She would share pictures throughout the year, but it wasn’t until she was 20 feet up on a cherry picker in the gym that we truly understood her awesomeness. Stephanie also volunteers as a member of the Parent Council Executive Committee and has been a lifelong Elmwood Franklin community member, graduating from here in 1990. We are honored to present the Unsung Hero award to Stephanie.
We thank them both, and all our volunteers, for their many contributions—they are appreciated!
