American Whitewater is pleased to announce the recipient of our April 2012 Volunteer of the Month award: Francheska Thompson!

Francheska was one of the rockstar volunteers at Gauley Fest, donating an incredible amount of time and positive energy to American Whitewater's biggest fundraiser. We were honored to have her help!

Gauley Fest's Volunteer Coordinator, Natalie Price, had this to say about her:

"Francheska contributed over 50 hours of her time over four days assisting AW management at our Gauley Fest Headquarters, Store and Volunteer Registration. Francheska is a Gauley Fest veteran, long time AW member, active in her local paddling club and a role model in the Georgia boating community. Thank you Francheska for your enthusiastic, resourceful, positive personality and all of time you and our family gave us at Gauley Fest 2011!"

In recognition of her efforts, Francheska will be receiving a OuterCore shirt from Kokatat. Thanks Francheska!
