The United Way of Portage County has selected Barb Boltz from Kent State University as the fall 2012 "Volunteer of the Quarter."
Boltz has been a volunteer with United Way for many years and has been a leader on campus and in helping those in need across Portage County.
"I believe in the mission and focus of the United Way of Portage County and have seen the impact that your funding can make in people's lives," she said.
"Your funding of programs that help people help themselves to overcome the difficult situation they are in and move to a better place is so rewarding. I believe that as world citizens and as community citizens, we need to pay it back if we have received help in the past, pay it forward for we may one day need help, and give of our time, talent and treasure to help those in need," Boltz said.
