Stellar SVSD Volunteers Recognized by Empower Youth Network

The Rise & Shine Breakfast, sponsored by Empower Youth Network, is a wonderful annual event that recognizes individuals whose volunteer efforts help and inspire Snoqualmie Valley youth to lead safe, healthy, and successful lives. On June 8, nominated students, community members and businesses were celebrated for their extraordinary volunteer service and contributions to Snoqualmie Valley youth – in both Snoqualmie Valley and Riverview school districts. Clearly, our communities spanning North Bend, Snoqualmie, Fall City, Carnation and Duvall have been strengthened and improved by behind-the-scenes efforts of caring volunteers. See photos below.
