Dorothy McKelvie, volunteer with Wake Tech ESL, wins award from NCSU’s Philanthropy Journal

Dorothy McKelvie, one of our wonderful ESL volunteers with Wake Tech, has won an award from North Carolina State University’s Philanthropy Journal for 2013.  Dorothy volunteers with students at our New Arrivals site,  many of whom are refugees to the United States.

A celebration was held on Monday, April 29, 2013,  at St. Andrews Lutheran church, to honor Dorothy’s selfless service and many hours of tutoring and helping the students.

Since 2009, Dorothy has spent over 300 hours of volunteer time with us!   

Thank you, Dorothy!   (scroll down for more photos)
