Our Volunteers Rock: Amanda Stevenson
The month of April is Florida 4-H Volunteer appreciation month! We are using this time to thank four of our exceptional volunteers that enable us to inspire and educate the youth of Nassau County.
Nassau County 4-H is blessed to have so, so many volunteers that it truly is incredibly difficult choosing only 4 to highlight in April. However, our first volunteer is heavily involved and absolutely invaluable to all of the county programs.
Amanda Stevenson is a club leader and parent, but she is also very often a go-to volunteer that we can trust to step up at almost every opportunity. Since her involvement only a few years ago, Amanda, has embraced all things 4-H. She understands and champions our mission while lending a hand to accomplish it.
Although Amanda is an amazing club leader, this recognition will focus on her actions outside of that role. Amanda has helped agents and members prepare for countless events, meetings,and workshops. Frankly, if something is happening you can almost guarantee to see her smiling face before, during, and after. She has grown her training to include being an Embryology volunteer, a Youth Emergency Team evaluator, helping facilitate contests for the fair, and is a mentor to new volunteers. She has even volunteered as a “victim” for the Youth Emergency Team and attends every YET meeting. Amanda’s primary role in 4-H is a parent, however, she is always ready to ask, “what can I do to help” no matter the event, subject, or challenge. You can count on her to provide honest feedback with a smile. She has never volunteered with any selfish motive and dislikes being the center of attention. Amanda, we hope you take a moment to realize just how much you have done for all of us.
Thank you for being a fantastic volunteer!
