Sahuarita High School Senior Named to Food Bank Advisory Board
The Advisory Board of the Green Valley-Sahuarita Community Food Bank has implemented the Advisory Board Youth Representative Program geared towards high school seniors. The purpose of the program is to give high school students the opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge of the food needs in our community, learn how these needs are being met and provide the school community at large with information, insights and perspectives using electronic communication.
The program will officially begin in the 2012-13 school year. However, Sahuarita High School Counselor Dr. Lynda Robinson identified an outstanding senior that she believed would be a good fit for the remainder of the current school year. The Green Valley-Sahuarita Community Food Bank is pleased to announce the appointment of Natalie Joost, Sahuarita High School senior and exemplary student, as the first Food Bank Advisory Board Youth Representative.
“We are pleased to have Natalie join the board,” says Mary Jane Goodrick, Executive Director. “Having a youth representative on the board will help the food bank reach out to the student population with knowledge about the real need for food assistance in our community. In addition, we hope that this program will help current high school students understand how volunteerism benefits them and the community.”
