03/14/2008: "Wynn Barnard Is The '08' Violet Richardson Winner"

ig_Soro_Wynn_Barnard-1 (42k image)Friday Harbor High School senior Wynn Barnard has just been selected as the regional winner of the Soroptimists’ Violet Richardson Award . This award honors a young woman between the ages of 14 and 17 who is committed to making the world a better place and has had significant and noteworthy accomplishments as a volunteer.

Wynn was honored as the Friday Harbor club’s winner last month, and her application was forwarded to the Northwest Region, where she competed with 72 award recipients from other clubs. She will be presented with a $1000 cash award at the Soroptimists’ regional conference in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, on April 26, and another $1000 will be donated to the Village-to-Village volunteer organization that she founded at the high school.

Wynn’s application has now been sent to Soroptimist International of the Americas, where she will compete for an additional award – including a contribution of $2500 to the winner’s volunteer organization -- with 27 other regional-level winners not only from the United States, but other countries as well.

This is the very first time that an award winner from the Friday Harbor club has ever been selected as the award recipient at the regional level of the Soroptimist organization.
