Congratulations to our Volunteer of the Year, Mr. Craig Lambert!  Mr. Lambert helped establish the SCA Jumpers.  For two years, he has devoted time to help Mrs. Mosely teach a great group of 3rd through 5th grade students different jump rope techniques and how jumping rope can improve overall health.  Mr. Lambert's devotion to the SCA Jumpers, his servant's heart, and his desire to see students grow in body and spirit made him the perfect recipient of the Volunteer of the Year!
