Sugar Land Recognizes Volunteers of the Year

The city of Sugar Land recently named six 2019 Volunteers of the Year.

The six volunteers contributed more than 700 hours of volunteer service to the city last year, equating to almost $18,000 in in-kind donations. Sugar Land’s Serve Sugar Land program has coordinated volunteer efforts in the city since 2007 as a way for the citizens of Sugar Land and surrounding neighborhoods to become involved in their city government.

Each year, city departments select a volunteer who fosters an atmosphere of community and enhances the delivery of city services by sharing their skills.

The 2019 Departmental Volunteers of the Year are:

  • Gabriel Rodriguez, Engineering and Permits and Inspections;
  • Barbara Hildebrand, Animal Services;
  • Eric Liu, Parks and Recreation;
  • Yaffa Steubinger, T.E. Harman Center;
  • Suzanne Whatley, Fire;
  • Trudy Thompson, Human Resources.

The volunteers were recognized for their service to the city during the Sugar Land City Council meeting on September 15th, 2020.
