Elaine Denslow

Page Ahead is proud to present the Sarajane Beal Award for Volunteer Excellence to Elaine Denslow.

Some people find ways to go above and beyond what is expected of them. Elaine Denslow is one of those people. Elaine began volunteering with Page Ahead in 2005, bringing her two boys along as she helped us prepare for our community fundraiser, Dish Up Literacy. She was also one of the first Story Time volunteers to be trained to present books, songs, and crafts to classrooms on a regular basis. For three years, Elaine visited Cascade Elementary in Renton every month. But while most volunteers visit one or two classes, Elaine took on four or five at a time! During her years as a Story Time volunteer, Elaine provided fun, consistent, and positive reading experiences for more than 260 kindergarteners. In addition to this work, Elaine also hosted a table at Page Ahead’s annual A Taste for Reading benefit luncheon. Thank you, Elaine, for giving so generously to children in need!
