Winner of the Sarajane Beal Award for Volunteer Excellence in 2016.
Page Ahead is proud to present the Sarajane Beal Award for Volunteer Excellence to María Teresa Vincens.
María Teresa can do anything, and has done most everything for us at Page Ahead. A journalist by trade, María Teresa first offered her writing skills to Page Ahead in 2011 volunteering on our newsletter, Chapters. She has gone on to write an article about Page Ahead published in Prime Time. A native Spanish speaker, María Teresa has provided Page Ahead with invaluable translating services turning training materials from English into Spanish. After getting involved with Page Ahead’s Story Time program as a story reader, she realized she had truly found her niche. A fabulous story reader, she also helps train the new Story Time volunteers, showing them the secrets of her success with the kids. María Teresa’s warmth and humor have enriched our lives as well as our programs here at Page Ahead, and we are grateful to her for sharing her many talents with us!
