"Receiving this award on behalf of my colleagues in FAPE and all volunteer coordinators across Florida is truly an honor. I could not do what I do without the support of the FAPE Board, who are my role models, and my county administration and site based volunteer coordinators. I love and enjoy my job making a difference in children’s' lives." ....Dorothy SpradleyI'm a paragraph. Click here to add your own text and edit me.
