USucceed teen wins Sioux Falls volunteer award

Reannae Tague, a participant in the LSS Mentoring Services USucceed program, is theIMG_8441 Children’s Dental Center & Parkway Orthodontics 2014 Spirit of Volunteerism Award winner in the Youth category. The Spirit of Volunteerism Luncheon is an annual project of the Helpline Center. This event honors volunteers in the Sioux Empire area for the impact they make on the community.

LSS has had the privilege of getting to know Reannae over the past four years. She has continually impressed our staff with her poise and dedication to help others. We were proud to nominate Reannae for this award! Her dedication to service and the impact she makes is felt at many different area nonprofit organizations. Reannae, who attends Roosevelt High School, can be seen serving breakfast at The Banquet before school, and she spends two Sundays each month helping at a local VFW pancake breakfast. She also visits seniors at the Golden Living Center and volunteers at the Children’s Inn helping kids who are hurting. Reannae once said that early in her high school career, she knew she had a chance to either spend her time doing good, or she could spend her time getting in trouble. She chose to make a difference with her time, and currently volunteers more than 20 hours each month.

We are so proud of Reannae and all of our USucceed students! We are sad to see Reannae graduate, but know that she will do well. We will continue to keep up with Reannae and we are especially excited to welcome her as a mentor next fall!
