Stephanie Kowack was selected as the county’s Parent Volunteer of the Year by the San Diego School Boards Association and was presented with her award at the Honoring Our Own awards dinner. Honoring Our Own is a collaboration between the Association of California School administrators, Region 18, and the San Diego School Boards Association. Stephanie was nominated by members of the Solana Beach School District’s Board of Education. “Her warm personality and can-do attitude are infectious. Somehow this mother of three is always around right when you need her,” stated Solana Pacific School Principal Elisa Fregoso. The award is intended to recognize a parent volunteer who embraces the tenet “All children are our children.” Regarding her award, Stephanie shared, “I feel honored receiving this recognition. I know my volunteer commitments have been so rewarding for me because I have been working with so many friends to accomplish our goals.”
