Volunteer of the Month: March

Reported by on 3/17/22

Melissa Wunderlich has been an amazing volunteer at Scullen Middle School. Because of her support as an LMC volunteer and promoting kindness within the school, she is being named the BMO Harris Bank District 204 Volunteer of the Month for March 2022.

Melissa has three children, a seventh grader at Scullen Middle School, and a freshman and senior at Waubonsie Valley High School. When she moved within the district six years ago, Melissa became a stay-at-home mother. She is a weekly volunteer at the Scullen LMC, a monthly volunteer at the Warrior Wearhouse, and she also volunteers at the Waubonsie LMC.

Her nomination states, “She is simply amazing in every way. One project that she developed was Kindness Crafts where students create a craft, write a kind note on it, and give it to a person to make them feel special. At this time in the world, kindness needs to be passed on whenever and however possible!”

Melissa says she volunteers because she loves to watch the kids enjoying creating, reading, and socializing with one another. She believes in supporting the school staff as they work hard.
