|Spencer, Winters named volunteers of year|
Two West Monroe women have been named state volunteers of the year by the Associated Professional Educators of Louisiana.
Pam Spencer and Sandie Winters were two of the 13 volunteers honored by A+PEL at the Governor's Mansion in Baton Rouge on June 10.
Spencer is a volunteer at Claiborne Elementary School where she is the head room mom for the entire school. She also plans teacher events, the book fair, fall festival and field days. She is a PTO board member, yearbook sponsor and developer of the new fundraising program at the school.
The staff at Claiborne Elementary praised Spence, stating, "she is one of the most hardworking, dedicated volunteers we have ever seen. She works very hard at our school to help everyone."
Spencer said she believes she can make a positive impact on children's lives through volunteering.
"I also can teach my own children to be better community citizens. Volunteering has allowed me to redirect the talents I used in the corporate environment in a positive way to benefit our school. Staying involved at the school has helped to give my life focus and purpose," Spencer said.
Spencer is a Monroe native. She is married to Pat Spencer and they have two children. She left a career as a marketing manager to be a stay-at-home mom.
Winters is a volunteer at West Ridge Middle School where she is a PALS board member, helps with the football program, academic awards, school choir, fundraising, organizing the fall festival and field trip transportation.
"Mrs. Winters not only willingly helps when called upon, she also is always finding ways to offer her services. Any recognition for her dedication and outstanding service she receives is well deserved," according to the statement issued from West Ridge Middle School.
Winters said, "Volunteering at this school means that I get to participate and be involved in my children's lives while they are in school. It means that I get to know a lot of the people who have such an influence on my children. I enjoy the friendships of the teachers and staff members who I have been blessed to get to know. I am so thankful that God has blessed me with the time to volunteer. I hope and pray to use the time God has given me wisely.
Winters is a Mississippi native who moved to Louisiana in 1991 after she married 4th Judicial District Judge Stephens Winters. They have three children. She also is a stay-at-home mom.
The 13 volunteers were selected by teachers throughout the state. They were nominated by members of A+PEL, a statewide teacher organization advancing teachers as career professionals.
