The Foundation relies on many volunteers throughout the year, and few are more dedicated to the values we espouse than our Foundation PTSA Ambassadors. They serve as liaisons between the Foundation, our 28 school communities, and our PTSA partners. Ambassadors are passionate about bringing the best possible public school education to all of our Bellevue students, and we were thrilled to have the opportunity to honor them with lunch and a little celebration of all their hard work.
In addition to recognizing all of our volunteer Ambassadors for their commitment of time and effort throughout the school year, we presented some special awards:
