     A Friend’s Support:

        a volunteer’s story
        last Christmas, South Dakota Achieve volunteer Kathy Clauson helped her
        friend lois create a necklace. The piece of jewelry, designed for lois’s sister
        linda, was a symbol of the teamwork that occurs through the programs at
        South Dakota Achieve.

        Several months later, at the Sioux Falls Spirit
        of Volunteerism awards banquet on may 5,
        Kathy Clauson was recognized with 55 other                      [volunteer kathy clauson (left)
        community volunteers for her talents, passion
        and time. To honor Kathy, her family—as well
        as lois and her sister—were present.
                                                                         sits with her friend lois at the

        something special happened at Kathy’s table.
                                                                     awards banquet. kathy helped lois
        As lois sat between her two favorite people—
        her friend Kathy and her sister linda—that                  make the necklace she is wearing.]
        necklace made a reappearance. linda took
        off the necklace, put it on lois, and, in doing
        so, brought the spirit of teamwork to light, as
        two sisters connected over a beautiful piece
        of jewelry.
