Outstanding Adult Volunteer of the Year
Laron Adams’ motto is “Together we move,” and he brings it to life every day at Garner Elementary. Laron started the Strong Father Mentoring Program in 2012, and a large portion of his week is spent mentoring young men in the 4th and 5th grades. These students look forward to his guidance every day and have shown marked improvements in their behavior, as well as on standardized tests. In the past five years, Laron has served as the Headstart Council Chair and SAC Committee Chair at Garner Elementary while also leading other community organizations. His dedication to supporting Garner Elementary perfectly exemplifies the spirit of volunteerism.
