Cheers to Volunteers! – Heidi Whitehill


DeLaSalle selected Heidi Whitehill as DeLaSalle’s 2011 “Volunteer of the Year” for the work she does with the fundraising events and more importantly the one-on-one tutoring she does in social studies. Heidi and her husband, Ethan, will be hosting the Patrons’ and Sponsors’ Reception at their home for DeLaSalle’s 2012 Speaker Series featuring Stephen Pemberton. As a board member, Ethan has supported DeLaSalle in many ways and the couple were co-chairmen of the 2011 DeLaSalle Movie Benefit along with Carla and Danny O’Neill.
