2018 Volunteer of the Year - Sarah Morden
Sarah Morden has been a board member with Community Futures Cowichan since 2012. Her experience as a self-employed consultant with local governments throughout the province on a range of local initiatives and projects has been an excellent fit with Community Futures. Sarah has been a valuable resource to our organization in our grant writing and project management activities. With her guidance, we have been successful in receiving funds and administering a number of community development projects. Sarah believes strongly in the value of collaboration and partnerships as a means to strengthening our local businesses. She is a supporter in raising social consciousness, particularly amongst the youth and community initiatives aimed at improving local quality of life and long-term sustainability.
It would be nearly impossible to do the great things we do without amazing individuals like Sarah. She is a great asset to Community Futures Cowichan and we are very happy that this is where she wants to volunteer her talent.
