Woman wins Senior Volunteer of the Year

A Marquette County woman is the 2013 Governor’s Senior Volunteer of the Year.

Yvonne Clark received the Governor’s Service Award in that category at a ceremony in Grand Rapids Tuesday night.

Michigan State Police Trooper Stacy Rasanen from the Negaunee Post is one of the two people who nominated Clark.

She says Clark volunteers a great deal of time to the Marquette County Retired Senior Volunteer Program, the Community Emergency Response Team, the Red Cross and to other causes.

Marquette County Emergency Management Coordinator Teresa Schwalbach also nominated Clark for the Governor’s Service Award.
