Recent graduate Courtney Reynolds, B.S. ’19 (Business Administration) was recently named the 2019 UNE Student Volunteer of the Year by the city of Biddeford. The annual award is given by the city to a UNE student who demonstrates exceptional civic contributions to the local community.
Reynolds has been an active community contributor for the past four years. She has volunteered in the Biddeford schools, worked as a member of UNE’s mentoring club, helped lead the annual UNE Day of Service, founded the American Red Cross Club at UNE, and served on the Board of Directors of the American Red Cross of Maine.
Biddeford Mayor Alan Casavant presented the award to Reynolds at a city council meeting earlier this month. He praised Reynolds for her strong work ethic and leadership skills. He also applauded UNE students in general, stating that “UNE “is a very valuable source of expertise in our community, and the foundation of that is, of course, the student population.”
