Cedar Rapids honors volunteers in schools


Eastern Iowa's largest school district honored the volunteers who help keep the district going.

The Cedar Rapids Community School District hosted its Outstanding School Volunteers ceremony Monday.

One volunteer from each of the district's 31 schools was honored. They make up the 2013 Volunteer Hall of Fame.

"The people recognized here tonight, they're representative of a very large group of people and we need to reach out and say thanks," said Dave Benson, Superintendent.

More than 7,100 people volunteered in Cedar Rapids schools last year. Altogether they contributed nearly 150,000 hours of service.
