Blake Tubbs, Outstanding Outcomes Award - This past holiday season, Blake coordinated a holiday service project at Sky View High School that raised over $2300 for Sub for Santa! He coordinated student volunteers, encouraged students and staff to donate, and made sure that all of the students had fun participating in the project. Blake also volunteered a full 3 days to support Sub for Santa's 2017 Christmas distribution as part of PSP's annual holiday service project. While only 1 day was required, Blake served an entire 8 hours on the second day!
Emma Tucek, Above & Beyond Award - Emma goes above and beyond at each PSP service project. She makes sure that the work gets done thoroughly, and she is an extremely valuable teammate during the projects. She is not afraid to take on the more laborious tasks, and she takes on those tasks with a smile on her face. She also supports many of our VISTA projects by bringing fun, environmental education to underserved youth and families that PSP's VISTA Members serve at their sites. Emma also coordinates a scholarship program that supports many of these individuals, based on a need she identified at the beginning of her service term. Emma ends her service in March, and everyone at PSP and Stokes Nature Center is going to miss her!
