Western Nevada College's Judy Larquier, administrative assistant for Economic Development and Driver Education, has been recognized as volunteer of the year by Active Volunteers in Douglas (AVID). AVID is a group that promotes, maintains and supports volunteerism in Douglas County, and provides avenues for recognition and encouragement of volunteers. Larquier was nominated and selected because of her work with the Carson Valley Arts Council, where she has volunteered for two years, helping to provide public relations support to the organization. She dedicates approximately eight hours a month to helping the Arts Council.
Larquier volunteers because she enjoys meeting and working with the different people and cultural groups that come to the area. The Arts Council has given her the opportunity to connect with various businesses, organizations and individuals in the community and as an added perk, she gets to help them research and select some extremely talented acts.
Larquier says, "I urge everyone to find an area that they enjoy and dedicate some time as a volunteer. Even with family and work commitments, most people can find a few hours to spend improving our community."
