CITRUS HEIGHTS, CA (MPG) - The Citrus Heights Chamber’s Education Committee honored Robin Stuhr as the Education Committee 2018 Volunteer of the year. The award was presented at the Chamber’s June 12, 2018, luncheon held at the Citrus Heights Community Center.

As an Atlas Disposal Industries employee, Robin has been an active member of the Chamber’s Education Committee for over five years and a member of the Citrus Heights Marching Band for many more. Four years ago, I asked Robin if she would assist me in coordinating the Student of the Month program.

There are dozens of tasks that need to be performed for the Student of the Month program. Robin manages the scheduling and is the essential link and communicator with the schools so their students are recognized at the Chamber’s luncheon.  

Each year, Robin creates the schedule of the schools for the Student of the Month program. Then, the month before the student is honored, she contacts the principal for information about the student. The schools are to provide a written narrative for the student who has exhibited exceptional citizenship and academic achievement and a photo authorization form so we can take and use photos of the student.  Sounds simple doesn’t it. Notifying the school is easy, but with all the programs and issues schools are handling daily, it takes time for them to identify a student and to prepare the information needed for the program. We have a very tight timeline to gather the information so the students can be recognized at the Chamber’s monthly luncheon. Getting the information requires Robin to be in continuous contact with the schools. It takes many volunteer hours to have an effective program. I am most grateful for the time Robin devotes to the Student of the Month program.

On behalf of the Chamber and Education Committee, I congratulate Robin on her devotion and volunteerism in coordinating with schools and performing the tasks needed so the students in the Citrus Heights school receive recognition of their achievements.

Local businesses sponsor the lunches for the student of the month and their guests. Rosa Umbach, Education Chair, was this month’s Student of the Month lunch sponsor.
