2019 Volunteer of the Year – Deanna and Chris Eckert

Volunteers Keep the FHFAC Running Smoothly!

The Forest Hills Fine Arts Center has been extremely fortunate over the years to train and work with many volunteers. Each volunteer completes a 3-hour training prior to working at the Center. Since the Center’s opening in April 2004 through June 2017, over 23,500 volunteer hours have been contributed.

Each year a Volunteer Recognition event is held and awards are given in areas of service and hours completed. In addition, the FHFAC awards the Volunteer of the Year Award annually to the volunteer who not only maintains the largest number of hours since training, but those that also exemplify the professional standards that the Center has come to expect from all volunteers.
