Springwater is proud to cast a spotlight on Alex Van Pelt, an amazing volunteer who has shared her time, expertise, and leadership abilities with us ever since her family came to Springwater.
Alex is mom to Evan, a Salmon, and Emma, an Acorn. For the past two years, Alex has chaired the Fundraising
Committee and has successfully led this committee in all fundraising activities, including two annual auctions. Under her leadership, the committee has met or exceeded its fundraising goal each year, which has contributed crucial dollars to the school’s operational budget.
Prior to her position as fundraising chair, Alex ran the flow rooms program at Springwater, ensuring that there were a sufficient number and variety of options for students to choose, and taking on the daunting organizational task of getting all the flow rooms scheduled and operating every 6-8 weeks throughout the school year.
Not only has Alex led the fundraising committee and the flow room program, but she has been involved in many other aspects of Springwater’s daily operations. Alex has a contagious smile and a cheerful demeanor. She exudes a strong drive and “can-do” attitude that always gets things done. We appreciate Alex’s generous giving of her time and energy and her ongoing dedication to Springwater. Springwater is infinitely thankful for volunteers such as Alex Van Pelt.
