Volunteer Florida recently announced Betty Mulligan as the 2018 Florida Volunteer of the Year. After 35 years of teaching, Betty has dedicated her retirement to developing a free tutoring program in Martin County, allowing students to expand their vocabularies and improve their reading comprehension skills.
Since 2017, Betty has worked with United Way of Martin County to enlist more than 80 retired and senior tutors to provide crucial one-on-one attention and instruction to more than 200 students at five different elementary schools every year.
“Betty exemplifies selfless volunteerism and community service,” said Vivian Myrtetus, CEO of Volunteer Florida.
