Cedarcrest staffer Kristi Connelly earns Golden Acorn

Cedarcrest High School's Kristi Connelly, an educational assistant, senior project coordinator, and devoted volunteer, recently received the Washington PTA's Golden Acorn Award.

True to her nature, Connelly kept the news to herself.

"Kristi is a very humble person," said Cedarcrest Principal Clarence Lavarias. "I did not know about this and she did not mention it to anyone."

The Golden Acorn Award is presented by a local PTA unit or council to recognize a volunteer's dedication and service to children and youth. Since the beginning of this program, more than 44,000 Golden Acorns have been presented to volunteers throughout the state.
