Grandma Genee Honored For Volunteer Work

Grandma Genee Heinz is known by everyone at Malabon, where she’s been a full-time volunteer for a dozen years.

All day, every day, for 12 years. That’s how long “Grandma Genee” Heinz has been a volunteer at Malabon Elementary.

Grandma Genee is the deserving winner of the ACE Award for Volunteers.

Whatever needs to be done, she’s game. Grandma Genee works in the school office, the cafeteria, the classrooms, and never seems to slow down.

She doesn’t have children of her own, but likes to say she has 425 grandchildren and they’re all at Malabon.

Thanks to the generosity of Oregon Community Credit Union, the award comes with $1,000 to be used for the school program of her choice.

Special thanks also to the Eugene Area Chamber of Commerce for their continued support of the ACE Awards.

And offer your congratulations to our other volunteer nominees who give freely to help our students and staff: Arlette Sherman and Eduardo Anguiano, Willamette; Bob Mullins, Prairie Mountain.
