Chloe Skinner has been selected as the 2019 Tigard Youth Volunteer of the Year, named in honor of former Mayor Jim Nicoli, who passed away in 2000. Mayor Nicoli’s dedication to the youth of our community was a fitting way to honor his name and award a youth in our community who volunteers to make a difference. Many young people in Tigard are active in volunteer efforts and it is our pleasure to acknowledge their contributions of dedication, energy and community spirit. They are our future!
Chloe is a senior at Tigard High School and plans to become a special education teacher in the future.
Chloe has been in the Tigard High School Key Club for four years and is currently the President. She has amassed more than 408 volunteer hours during her high school career. She has volunteered for organizations like Meals on Wheels, Tigard Good Neighbor Center, Oregon Food Bank, Northwest Children’s Outreach and so much more!
Chloe is also the Co-President of the Honor Society, Co-President of Sparrow, and President of Super Friends. In working towards her career goal, she is also involved as a peer tutor at Tigard High working with special education students.
Key Club Advisor Jay Leet says “I taught in Tigard for 30 years and have worked with Key Club for the past 15 since retiring. I have never seen a student (or adult) as giving as Chloe.”
