Honoree 2015 – Anita Taillon

Congrats to Anita Taillon for being honored as an outstanding community volunteer!

Name:  Anita Taillon

Nominating Organization:  OCCR, READ/OC Adult Literacy Services

Honoree Category:  Human & Community

Why Nominated:  The path that Anita has taken to becoming our star volunteer was an unusual one. Most volunteers start out as literacy tutors, but Anita first came to READ/OC in 2006 to assist at a single event, the Annual Family Picnic and Appreciation Celebration. Since that time, Anita’s dedication to supporting the READ/OC volunteers has steadily grown until now she is both Vice President and Treasurer of the Friends of READ/OC, as well as the Chair of the Friends’ most active committee in charge of recognition activities. Although she has never been a tutor herself, Anita shows great understanding and enthusiasm in supporting the program and its tutors. Her organizational skills and artistic talent have become legendary at the annual Family Picnic and Fall Feast appreciation events. In addition, she helps ensure that the program receives steady material and operational support throughout the year. Anita’s humor, insight, and dedication make her a truly extraordinary volunteer.

Please write a note of congratulations below!
