|Mr. and Mrs. Jones and their daughter Alexis Jones 2012 Bass Award winner.|
Last year it was our pleasure to give our first Bass Volunteer Award to Ms. Alexis Jones. Alexis was the perfect volunteer to be the recipient because she had the same qualities of dedication and commitment that Antoinette and James Bass possessed. Alexis decided to tutor a student who was having difficulty with the Constitution test. She gave up her Saturdays, made up a curriculum that helped him understand everything she was trying to teach him. Her method was not just having him memorize the correct answers but truly know the material. He passed the quizzes she prepared for him and the Constitution test with flying colors.
Antoinette and James (or Toni & Big Dog as we called them) were two of our first volunteers who we modeled what we were looking for in a Chrysalis volunteer. Great listening skills, being able to adapt to any situation, dedication to the empowerment of our youth, and commitment of making our young people capable and involved community leaders while having fun doing so were the attributes this couple brought every Saturday. Who could ask for more of a role model?
So join us on Sunday, August 25th at Glenwoodie Golf Club 19301 State St. Glenwood, IL 60425 for our 5th Annual Golf Outing and Recognition Dinner....tee time: 10:30am; dinner registration starts at 4pm.
