Mrs. Eliza Hill is the perfect example of what a Foster Grandparent volunteer should be. This individual is a veteran FG volunteer having served with the same kindergarten teacher for over eleven years. While the program is designed to match senior volunteers one-on-one with individual children needing special attention that is offered by FGs, this FG works individually with EACH child in the class. She shows each child that she loves them; she shows them that they are unique and special. She celebrates with each child their small victories like learning a letter, reading a new sight work, writing new number.

She is patient, kind and her ability to make each child feel that they belong to her are great attributes to have while working with each child individually with reading, writing, alphabets recognition, math skills and social skills; she makes each of them feel that they are special to her and that she is their “grandma.” Mrs. Hill was selected as the 2010 CCA/FGP of the year from a pool of over 80 FGs.

In addition to her volunteer service at Morehead Primary School, each summer she contributes her time at Morehead Parks and Recreation Department’s summer enrichment program for kids where she has proven to be a valuable asset to their team as well.
