Recipient's comments: "I was really very pleased. (The Red Triangle) is an award for being the best volunteer in a chapter for the year. It's nice to be recognized for putting the time in, but it's actually a recognition of what the kids are doing in the program. Fifty students were involved last year, the kids get a lot out of it. It's something that I was involved in when I was in school and being on the other side and doing it as an adviser is really interesting."
