Volunteer Spotlight

This week's volunteer spotlight shines on Konni Petersen who is involved with the SHIBA program as Volunteer.

Konni grew up in American Falls, Idaho, where she attended school. She has been married for 41 years and has two children and three grandchildren. She has been a rancher for most of her life, running a large ranch in Montana for 22 yrs and then returning to Idaho to a ranch just outside of Soda Springs. Konni started as a SHIBA volunteer at the Caribou Senior Center in 2008.

Konni is a valued asset to the SHIBA program.

We depend on volunteers like her to make it convenient for people in the smaller communities to get the guidance they need.


Watch this space for monthly changes to our Volunteer in the Spotlight. If you would like to nominate someone to be a volunteer in the spotlight, submit your nomination to your volunteer coordinator, giving the name of the volunteer and why you think he or she deserves to be in the spotlight.
