Abey named START Volunteer of the Year

Michelle Abey has been named the SToughton Area Resource Team (START) 2022 Community Volunteer of the Year.

Michelle Abey has been named the SToughton Area Resource Team (START) 2022 Community Volunteer of the Year “with great privilege and gratitude.”

Each year, START presents the award to someone who has made exceptional contributions to the START organization and Stoughton Community, according to an Aug. 4 START news release.

“Over the past many months, Michelle’s contributions as a volunteer Executive Board Member have been beyond measure,” the release read. “During a time of leadership transition, Michelle stepped into various roles using her personal and professional time and expertise that allowed START to continue serving its participants and community. Without Michelle’s dedication and willingness to gracefully tackle anything that came her way, change within START would not have been as successful.”

The public is invited to START Annual Fundraiser and Celebration in Abey's honor from 5:30-8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct 18 at The Fields Reserve, 2479 Glenn Drive. For more details on how to purchase tickets, visit startstoughton.org.
