Monday at the Executive Mansion in Olympia, a retired principal from Wenatchee was among the dozens of people recognized during the presentation of the Governor’s Volunteer Service Awards. Mary Perkins’ selfless act must have stood out, for the boundless good it has done for so many young lives.

In 2009 Perkins went to her unit of the Retired School Employees Association seeking recruits to staff a volunteer reading and math program for Rock Island Elementary as it suffered through budget cuts. The response was rapid and strong. They work one-on-one, develop a close relationship with their students, and their caring and skill have transformed the atmosphere of the school. The effect is tangible and evident in the school’s test results.
