Congratulations to Rosemary Jones, GRAVA’S 2014 Volunteer Engagement Professional of the Year!!!
Rosemary received the award at the Annual Conference on July 10, 2014. Rosemary is the Director of Volunteer Services at the Peter Paul Development Center in Richmond’s East End, and she formerly served on the GRAVA Board in the Membership Chair role.
Rosemary is known for her creativity in engaging volunteers and for building long-term relationships with staff, program participants, corporate partners, and community volunteers. Along with being a wonderful administrator, she is a real team leader, doing all of this with a smile, positive attitude, and caring nature.
Rosemary was nominated for this award by HandsOn Greater Richmond. Over the past five years, Rosemary and the Peter Paul Development Center have engaged with HandsOn Greater Richmond for several corporate volunteer projects, HandsOn Day, Do It Yourself projects, and recently as a partner in the Service Enterprise pilot year initiative. In large part through Rosemary’s efforts, the Peter Paul Development Center was one of two organizations in the Richmond pilot recognized as a blue ribbon Service Enterprise.
