Beyond our program partnership with the Solano Land Trust, our longest collaboration (spanning more than a decade) is with the students and teachers of Golden Hills School. On Fridays during the school year, Golden Hills teacher Judy Waelbrock brings a group of special needs students to volunteer at our Rush Ranch headquarters.
Judy, and her enthusiastic crew pitch in wherever needed, performing tasks for Access Adventure and our stable of horses. Along the way, Judy’s students learn the value of teamwork, essential job skills and develop a sense of satisfaction in helping us do our important work for people with disabilities and other underserved members of our communities.
In recognition of her outstanding leadership and teaching skills at Golden Hills, Judy Waelbrock has been honored as the Solano County Office of Education’s Educator of the Year. We are also honored to have Judy as a volunteer, a sponsor and a treasured friend.
Congratulations, Judy for this well-deserved award! See video.
