Bernice Hernandez, a volunteer at Cloverleaf Elementary School, was recognized for her service at the GPISD Board of Trustees meeting on January 13, 2015. For three years, Mrs. Hernandez has been an active member of the “Mama Bears,” a group of parent volunteers who daily visit the campus to assist teachers with their projects. She also assists with translating. “Mrs. Hernandez is a very special person on our campus. She is here daily to answer phones, communicate with other parents, and is always ready to assist in any way,” said Joan LeBlanc, principal’s secretary. The impact of the volunteers is felt on the campus.
