Virginia Trela "Unsung Hero" Award
Virginia Trela (above, in1999) was a longtime VIPS volunteer working in the Munger Hill and South Middle School libraries for more than ten years. Virginia joined our program at its inception in 1994, after having worked in the Munger Hill Elementary School library from the time the school opened in 1993 and she remained an active volunteer until she passed away. Ginny started volunteering after she retired. She could be seen in the library three days a week as she felt it was important to help and she loved being with the children. We honor her contribution to our schools by recognizing an individual each year that has made a contribution to the school or assignment he/she has working in,who gives freely of his/her time in any capacity that helps the students or staff, and brings his/her unique personality and talents to their volunteer experience with the same commitment "Ginny" did.
