KCH Auxiliary Recognizes Teen Volunteers
July 12, 2007
The Kishwaukee Community Hospital Auxiliary's Teen-Age Group Service program, known as TAGS, has always been a respected way for local teens to serve their community. At the Auxiliary's annual meeting June 18, 12 members of the TAGS program were acknowledged for their service to the hospital.
Alyssa Miner was named TAG of the Year. She also was recognized for top hours worked.
"Alyssa was chosen because she is very dependable, compassionate and professional in performing her duties," Findlay says. "She has volunteered to work on many holidays, filling in for those who chose to be with their families."
Alyssa, who is home-schooled, has been a TAG for three years. In that time she has volunteered over 300 hours. Besides her duties at the reception desk, she volunteers in the gift shop and has helped with many extra activities such as the KCH Ice Cream Social and Relay for Life.
The TAGS with more than 75 hours of volunteer service for this 12-month period were Marissa Beldon, Chance Blumhorst, Emerald Fannin, Hailie Fowler, Britini Michael, Alyssa Miner, Dhruv Patel, Kristen Rabe, Elizabeth Ritter, Kevin Smith, Liz Snyder and Wade Tischhauser.
According to Judy Findlay, KCH Volunteer Services Assistant, all 12 TAGS honored this year have been very helpful in filling in open spots in the volunteer schedule whenever possible.
