Volunteer of the Year

Posted on April 10, 2018

Sarah Leslie was selected to represent the Town of Kentville at the Provincial Volunteer Awards which were held on April 9th, 2018 in Halifax.

Kentville’s new library space would not be the success it is today without Sarah’s contributions, leadership and dedication driving the Friends of the Kentville Library and their fundraising initiatives.  Working as a middle school teacher in our community and seeing a need for more safe spaces for students was a driving force behind her involvement with the Friends of Kentville Library. Her pride in her community and its people is directly reflected in the space and the relationships she was able to forge. It is through her generous spirit and hard work that we were able to open the doors to a world-class facility. The Town of Kentville would like to extend a heartfelt congratulations once again to Sarah!
