Each autumn, the Catholic Business Network of Montgomery County celebrates a volunteer and a business partner from each school. This year, we congratulate and thank Stephanie Serna Klinger as our St. Raphael School Volunteer of the Year! In a school with many generous helping hands and fabulous volunteers, Stephanie stands out. School events, Stephanie is there! In the middle of the action, Stephanie is planning setup, organizing fun, and making it come together. Surrounded by her husband and friends, she gets the job done! As president of our Home & School Association, Stephanie recruited and collaborated with our roster of class representatives, orchestrated regular communications with parents and staff, and ensured that our calendar was filled with events to punctuate each season for our students. From a school year opening day to SpringFest at the end, we applaud Stephanie for a job well done! Not even COVID has stopped Stephanie or dampened her efforts. With her phenomenal technology skills, she has made SRS online initiatives come to life. A huge thank you to our 2020 volunteer of the year, Stephanie Klinger!

Stephanie will be recognized at the Catholic Business Network of Montgomery County’s annual Gala on Dec. 3.
