Teri Schmidt-Little was Koinonia’s 2010 Volunteer of the year for all the efforts she makes for our Teens. Pictured here being awarded the California State Assembly Certification of Recognition by Assemblyman Dr. Richard Pan and Koinonia’s Administrator Bill Ryland at this year’s United Way’s Volunteer Recognition Celebration. The United Way California Capitol Region once again hit a homerun hosting the event at Mulvaney’s B & L restaurant in downtown Sacramento.
Teri is dear to the hearts of Koinonia as she is tireless in supporting our Kids. Whether raising money and gifts at Christmas time and throughout the year, hosting movie night for our girls or supporting Pastor Francis’ work with our young ladies, Teri is always there. We also have learned that all we have to do is present an issue to Teri and with her professional experience, her business savvy, and her heart for the Teenagers, no problem is insurmountable. At every turn, for a number of years, Teri has risen above and beyond for each new generation of young people at Koinonia. She is truly our Volunteer of the year.
