The East Madison Community Center held its annual volunteer recognition and scholarship awards dinner on June 7, 2019. This year’s event was held in at the EMCC in the multipurpose room. Over 75 volunteers and their families filled the room. Also, the EMCC recognized Floor360 as its Business Partner of the Year, and Operation Fresh Start as the Nonprofit Partner of the Year. Jaquesha “Shuga” Hunt owner of Issa Snack provided dinner and décor. Everyone loved the food and setup!
After a fun-filled double-dutch demonstration by EMCC students and even a few mothers, the newly elected Madison Mayor Satya Rhodes-Conway shared words of encouragement with those in attendance and presented awards. One of the most coveted awards among the youth is Volunteer of the Year. This year we recognized two students with the award. Ashely Bruno and Godfrey Bradshaw took home the evening’s top honors for their extraordinary volunteerism and fantastic willingness to help when needed. Also, three students were selected to receive this year’s Woody Carey Scholarship. This year’s recipients were Dominique Harvey, Renee Robinson, and Jennifer Xiong.
