Joyce Matthews Award

Frontier College is pleased to announce the first annual Joyce Matthews National Volunteer Award, the highest form of recognition given to our volunteers. As a member of the Frontier College Board, Joyce Matthews worked to raise awareness of the role of our organization as a leader in delivery of literacy programs. Joyce was also one of the first and founding volunteers of the Frontier College Reading Circles. She was a true example of the Frontier College mission, and the award will be presented in her name to an individual who has demonstrated exceptional commitment and support to our mission through, leadership, commitment to change in the community, group, or individual they work with, and creativity in their role as volunteer.
