“Since 2005, Governor Christine Gregoire and the Washington Commission for National and Community Service have honored volunteers in Washington State by presenting them with the Governor’s Outstanding Volunteer Service Award. Included in this year’s honorees for this prestigious award was Stephanie Schuster.
Stephanie was nominated for this award by Seattle Works, a Seattle based organization she has served with for over 3 years. Stephanie’s passion for volunteering extends beyond Seattle Works as well. She routinely volunteers with Habitat for Humanity (domestically and internationally), Treehouse for Kids, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Washington/Alaska, and she is the Community Involvement Chair for the Puget Sound region of REACH, the Boeing new employee group.
In an award ceremony held on April 23rd at the Governor’s Mansion in Olympia, Stephanie received her award from the Governor and discovered that both women have a passion for volunteering with the Family Meals program at the Seattle Ronald McDonald House.
Volunteering allows me to develop a deeper understanding of my community, it develops leadership skills, it’s a great way to network and get to know people who have similar beliefs, and best of all, it gives me the feeling that I am making a positive difference in the world around me.”
