This year’s winner was Lee Haly. Debby Myers, Board Chair expressed, “We also want to thank those who stood out in the cold to ring the bells and those who contributed, organized and made sure the Angel Trees got where they needed to be.” The student Leadership awards this year went to both West Broadway Elementary and Browning Springs Middle School for all their hard work during Thanksgiving. These students took their time to give back by coming in and serving and waiting tables.
