September 16 kicked off GRACE’s Outstanding Volunteer series! We will be featuring an “outstanding volunteer,” recognized for their servitude, from each of our nine school sites.
The very first Outstanding Volunteer Award went to Mr. Marv Wall from Notre Dame of De Pere! Mr. Wall served as a parish representative on both the Notre Dame of De Pere Site Advisory Council and the GRACE Board of Trustees for many years. While other committee members rotate through every few years, Mr. Wall is a constant.
“His consistency and willingness to pitch in wherever is needed to get the job done are just some of his many admirable qualities. During Notre Dame of De Pere’s building project, Marv was integral in the entire building process. Not only did he help the project come to fruition on schedule, he also became an honorary and volunteer member of our staff. Marv stepped in to serve lunches, oversaw and personally carried many of the boxes in the moving process, set up a live stream so we could all watch the process, spoke to classes, and offered to come build a basketball hoop I had promised to my own boys at home. We ended up building that hoop ourselves and the whole time I wished Marv was there. Marv has a big heart and an easy going sense of humor. He is an outstanding role model for our students and all who have the privilege to know him. Marv continues to be one text away when we are stuck and is an important part of the Notre Dame of De Pere Family.”
Thank you, Marv!
