LMHS Student Nominated for Outstanding Volunteer Award

Mary Claire Henricksen, a senior at Linn-Mar High School, is one of three nominees for United Way of East Central Iowa’s Outstanding Volunteer Award in the youth category.

Last year, while volunteering at Mercy Medical Center, Henricksen was part of a group of Linn-Mar students who held conversations with residents to hear about their lives through the Mercy storytellers program. The memories were turned into written stories and a binder was created to share with the residents, their families, and guests.

Volunteers are recognized in five categories: Youth, Adult, Senior, Business, and Group. Winners of each award will be announced at the United Way’s Volunteer Awards event on April 20.

Congratulations and good luck!
