End-of-Year Honors: Highlighting TL&LC's Shining Stars

TL&LC Salutes Volunteer of the Year: Vickie Betts!

With the end of the 2023-24 school year, TL&LC would like to celebrate excellence and share the pride of outstanding individuals. 

We are thrilled to announce Vickie Betts as our Volunteer of the Year! With her dedication and boundless energy, Vickie embodies the spirit of volunteerism. Her leadership and expertise are invaluable to the Center. She shares her valuable skills by tutoring math to after-school students. A champion for student success, she has even taken the initiative to start programs like an end-of-year math exam prep class for Highlands School students.

Her impact extends far beyond her own efforts. She actively recruited volunteers from her connections at Wildcat Cliffs, significantly bolstering TL&LC's volunteer base and further building a support network for TL&LC's students. And her commitment doesn't stop there. She serves on the board of directors, actively participates in the events committee, and chairs the upcoming fundraiser, Swingin' Soiree, to be held Sunday, June 2, at The Farm by Old Edwards (tickets can be purchased at

Vickie perfectly captures the essence of volunteering by saying, "I thrive on helping students conquer past hurdles and build confidence through learning new skills." Her constant smile as she helps others speaks volumes about her joy in giving back. Her enthusiasm is contagious, and staff and students are incredibly grateful for her passion and energy.
