September 2017 Featured Volunteer of the Month: Karen Wright!

Congratulations to our September PTSA Star Volunteer of the Month, Karen Wright.  Karen was nominated by Amy Pitt and voted on by the Executive Board.  Here are a few things that Amy had to say about Karen:

“Karen has taken on one of the biggest roles in the PTSA as the Special Projects Chair and she is doing an amazing job. She has been busy working all summer planning the Staff Luncheon, Popcorn Wednesdays and getting our fabulous Spirit Wear ready to order. Karen is one of the first people to sign up for every event and is always someone you can count on when you need it. She is an awesome part of our PTSA and we are lucky to have her.

Karen has 2 daughters at Stillwater, a 4th and 2nd grader.  This is Karen’s second year at Stillwater and is extremely active in our PTSA.  She won the Volunteer of the Month back in October 2016 and also the PTSA “Top Volunteer” for the 2016-2017 school year.

Karen spent her childhood growing up in Lynnwood, received her AA from Edmonds Community College, and has lived in Duvall for 15 years. Before she came to Stillwater, Karen worked full time in Snoqualmie and her daughters attended school near her work.   She decided to leave her job and do what she really wanted to do, “stay home with my girls and be active in their school.”  This year Karen is looking forward to our new event in November, the Winter Craft Fair.

In her free time, Karen loves to spend time with her family, curl up with a good book and is very interested in genealogy.  When asked what her dream job would be she said, “I’ve always wanted to be an event organizer. Which I get to fulfill (somewhat,) thanks to all of the wonderful PTSA events​”.  If Karen had the opportunity to volunteer with anyone, dead or alive, she would love to volunteer with “Princess Diane”.

Karen is a dedicated mom not only at Stillwater but also on the sports field where she has coached her daughter’s sports teams.  Her favorite sport to play is basketball but she admits she loves watching football, especially our Seattle Seahawks.

One of Karen’s favorite snacks is popcorn, which is very fitting since she oversees our monthly Popcorn Wednesday.  She is looking forward to our very first popcorn Wednesday on October 4th.   Karen is an amazing volunteer and we thank her for her service to the PTSA.

Congratulations to our other September nominee’s, Rachel DelCarmen and Sharla Hall.
