VERO BEACH — Marylyn Rogers was named Volunteer of the Year by the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program of Indian River County (RSVP) at a reception held at Schumann Hall on the campus of the Senior Resource Association, sponsor of RSVP.
Rogers was nominated for the honor by the United Way of Indian River County where she has volunteered for the past three years. She has been an integral part of the Direct Mail portion of their Annual Campaign which raises almost half of all annual campaign contributions received. In nominating Rogers, Doris Butler, United Way Campaign Associate, acknowledged that it would be impossible for United Way staff to process these mailings with volunteer help.
Michael Kint, CEO of United Way of Indian River Count, spoke on her behalf at the award ceremony, citing her contributions to United Way as being invaluable, and her dedication and cheerfulness being an inspiration to all around her.
The award was presented by Sara Bumgarner, Executive Director of RSVP, who addressed the continuing need for volunteers, and cited Ms. Rogers as a model for all current and future volunteers.
