Organization Name: Volunteer Lethbridge

Volunteer's Name: Jamie Prindle

About this volunteer:
Never will you meet a more enthusiastic, vibrant and passionate young lady! After just one encounter, you know that Jamie is destined for greatness.

Jamie was the driving force behind the success of this year's Catholic Central High School's Santa's Anonymous Club. Threatened with closure due to low membership numbers, she recruited 30 friends and saved the Club from being disbanded. With the assistance of club members, Jamie put her time and energy into organizing the "Jingle Bell Rock" dinner, dance and silent auction. Under her guidance, the event doubled the projected dollar goal and was able to provide twice as many hampers to families in need.

Jamie has been organizing, planning and creating a Wake-a-Thon that took place on April 3rd. It was a resounding success and money raised will be donated to the International Wheelchair Foundation.

In addition, Jamie has spent endless hours working with the cast and crew of Catholic Central High School's theatre productions, and has volunteered with Kids Help Phone Line, Rotary Dinner and the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Jamie is a Leader of Tomorrow that we can all follow with confidence!

Volunteer's Name: Sean Annis

About this volunteer:
5-11 Year Old Award Recipient

Lethbridge can rest assured that our future is in good hands with youth leaders such as our youngest award recipient, Sean Annis.

Sean has been volunteering approximately five shifts per week throughout the school year as a team leader/captain for the AMA School Safety patrol at L'Ecole Agnes Davidson School. Although a quiet young man, this 11 year old is no stranger to the public eye; with a photo spread and write up, the Lethbridge Herald recognized Sean for his contributions to this program in September of 2003. In addition, Sean has been recognized more than once as the "Patroller of the Month" by his peers.

Sean is also a member of the 14th Mckillop Cubs with Scouts Canada. He has been awarded "Cub of the Year" and "Six of the Year." Sean shows leadership and dedication through example in School Safety patrol, Cubs and in everyday life. Although Sean never seeks out recognition, it can't help but find him. He is an inspiration to others.

Sean is a true Leader of Tomorrow!

Organization Name: Volunteer Lethbridge

Volunteer's Name: Derek Kroetsch

About this volunteer:
Dedication, commitment and a desire to do his best describes this 20 year old University of Lethbridge student.

Derek has committed the past 11 years to the 4H Club, most recently as both Assistant Leader and Camp Leader in the East Central 4H region. While taking on a leadership role within the organization, Derek never fails to lend a hand wherever it is needed, helping with events such as the beef projects and at the local show and sale.

A strong dedication to community was demonstrated during Derek's time with the Sir Alexander Galt Museum. Instrumental in the creation of a database of Galt Babies-people born in the Galt Hospital-he often worked on the database from home after already volunteering at the Museum throughout the weekend. From an historical perspective, the database is invaluable; from a fiscal standpoint, the database is an important tool that will be utilized extensively in the Galt Museum's upcoming Capital Campaign.

Derek is also a founding member of the Ace Club, a ratified club at the University of Lethbridge designed to support business/management students. He is currently assisting with the creation of the 1st Annual Conference at the U of L for management students.
