SVA Volunteer of the Year Award Winner Sabrina Kemp, nominator Joanne Tibbles, and SVA President Tanya Hein
Local resident Sabrina Kemp was named as the Stittsville Village Association’s Volunteer of the Year for outstanding work in the community at the SVA Annual General Meeting November 23rd. Joined by her family, Ms. Kemp was presented with an award, flowers, and a donation to the organization of her choice — Stittsville Public School’s outdoor classroom.
“The SVA is very pleased to recognize Sabrina’s contribution to the community,” SVA President Tanya Hein said. “Her efforts in saving a portion of the Shea Road Woods and in creating an outdoor classroom will have a lasting impact in Stittsville.”
Ms. Kemp was nominated by her neighbour, local realtor Joanne Tibbles.
“I would like to nominate my neighbour Sabrina Kemp,” Ms. Tibbles wrote in her nomination submission. “Sabrina is a mom to 3 children – Benjamin 11 – Braeden 9 & Madeline 7 years old. She has been an integral part in the organization to conserve the Shea Woods with Shad Quadri as well as bringing the first outdoor classroom to Stittsville Public School.
Recently she organized a ball hockey tournament to help raise money for the Stittsville Rams hockey team and she is always ready and willing to help a friend or neighbour in their time of need.
Sabrina is passionate about family, community and the environment and I am humbled to call her a friend.
I cannot think of anyone more fitting for this award and I thank you for your consideration of her.”
This is the second time the SVA has given the award, which recognizes Ward 6 residents of any age, who, through volunteering, have had a positive impact in our community. Last year’s winner was Hélène Rivest.
