Abbi Slininger, 7th grade student at Minnehaha Academy, was honored with a 2015 BestPrep Volunteer Service Award for her outstanding volunteer efforts with BestPrep over the past 10 years.
During the past year, more than 4,200 volunteers have participated with BestPrep’s programs. Each year, the top 1% of these volunteers is honored for their exemplary efforts. Abbi is among those who have gone above and beyond to fulfill BestPrep’s mission.
By far the youngest volunteer to have ever received BestPrep’s Service Award, Abbi has been helping with the organization’s fundraising events since she was about 2 years old, joining her mother Kim Christianson, who was on BestPrep’s Board of Directors. Abbi’s first job was laying pencils next to all the silent auction bid sheets. As both technology and Abbi’s age have progressed, her role at the event has grown. She now helps the staff organize silent auction items prior to the event and packages the gift baskets for the auction.
Abbi received her Volunteer Service Award at BestPrep’s 39th Annual Luncheon, held May 19. Congratulations Abbi!
