2019 Volunteers of the Year

2019 School Volunteers of the YearNearly 3,000 volunteers in Rio Rancho schools work with staff and students every year, helping out in the classroom and school offices, on sports fields, and in art and music rooms.  Volunteers log thousands of hours in our schools every year, and we truly appreciate each and every one of them.  However, some volunteers truly go above and beyond, and Rio Rancho Public Schools honors them every year at its annual Recognition Dinner.  Each school chooses a Volunteer of the Year; some of whom are shown in the photo at right.  This year's honorees are:
