Middle Tennessee volunteers were honored yesterday at the 2001 Mary Catherine Strobel Volunteer of the Year Awards for the time and energy they have donated to bettering the community. The awards were presented during a ceremony held at the downtown Renaissance Nashville Hotel Ballroom.
Fifteen-year-old Phuong Thao Bao Le took the Youth Volunteer Award for her work at the Siloam Family Health Center. The center, located on 12th avenue, provides medical services for people who have no insurance. Care at Siloam never exceeds $10.
Bao Le began working at the center three years ago and serves as a Vietnamese translator.
