Two Port Orange school volunteers were recently honored with the Outstanding School Volunteer Award by Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart.

Kathleen Learn, a Cypress Creek Elementary School volunteer, and Georgia Howard, a Silver Sands Middle School volunteer, were among 15 people who received the award. The annual award is presented to students and adults who donate their time in Florida’s K-12 public education system.

Learn and Howard were two of three recipients in Central Florida. 

“Our state’s educators rely on volunteers of all ages and backgrounds to assist in the classroom and with school-wide events,” Stewart said in a press release. “I am proud to honor these individuals and all school volunteers who have dedicated selflessly countless hours to making Florida schools great places to receive an education. I applaud their efforts, and I hope they will serve as an inspiration to their fellow Floridians to make a difference in local schools.”
