Congratulations to our 2023 Jeri Hamilton Extraordinary Service Award Winners!

Mark Kummerer and Phanna Pich (2023)

Mark Kummerer and Phanna Pich have been invested in Serendipity Center’s success since 2006, when Mark joined the Board of Directors. He proceeded to serve as Treasurer and on the Finance Committee for over 10 years. Even after he left our Board, Mark and Phanna continued to support our students by donating huge amounts of clothing every year, ensuring our clothing closet is always well-stocked. They have involved their friends in their giving, introducing as many community members as possible to our mission. Last year, Mark re-joined our Finance Committee and continues to be a valuable addition to our team. Thank you, Mark and Phanna for your service!

Each year, Serendipity honors those individuals and corporations whose efforts have enhanced Serendipity’s capacity to educate and nurture our children. Jeri Hamilton was presented with the first award in 2008. It has become tradition to conclude Serendipity’s annual event, Pearls of Hope, by honoring new extraordinary volunteers with an award presented in Jeri’s name.
