Recognized by Yavapai College Foundation for his outstanding work raising funds and making citizens aware of Verde Valley programs
Cottonwood resident Bobby Woods received the Yavapai Community College Outstanding Volunteer Award at the Foundation’s annual luncheon May 10, 2017. Mr. Woods began as a volunteer in 2009 when he was recruited by Ms. Ruth Wicks to join the Yavapai Community College Foundation’s Greater Verde Valley Chapter. When President Penelope Wills essentially closed down the Verde Valley Chapter, Woods joined the Friends of the “Southwest Wine Center,” which is a fundraising auxiliary for the Yavapai Community College Foundation. Since 2009 he has volunteered hundreds of hours first with the now defunct Chapter and then the successor Southwest Wine Center auxiliary. Congratulations to Bobby Woods for his commitment to higher education in the Verde Valley and the well-deserved recognition.
