September Volunteer or the Month, Ruby Kooner!
Congrats are in order for our September star, Ruby Kooner, our first Volunteer of the Month for 2018-2019! Ruby has put in numerous hours on her own time updating and managing our PTA website. She is also chairing the ASEP Young Rembrandts program this year, volunteers in the Learning Commons, will be GLC for 3rd grade, and is a co-leader for the 3rd grade Brownie troop. When asked what her favorite volunteer job at Stinson is, she replied, “I love them all! I like to stay busy.”
Ruby is married to Jason and they have 3 children: Jordan in 7th grade, Kyla in 3rd, and Lucy in Pre-K. She grew up in Toronto, Canada and majored in Psychology and Computer Programming at The University of Toronto and Humber College. She minored in Anthropology. Ruby freelances part-time as a software developer and business analyst. In her spare time she enjoys Jazzercise, reading, scrapbooking, karaoke, and playing the flute and piano. Outside of volunteering at Stinson, she is currently “trying to learn how to use my sewing machine better and play the guitar".
