After their regular membership meeting on Wednesday, February 11, the Nashville Chamber of Commerce read nominations for and voted on individuals for volunteer of the year, electing Rosalee Boreup for 2015.
“I was in shock for the rest of the afternoon after they told me,” Boreup said. “I do a lot of things, but you never give that a though when you’re volunteering to do these things.”
The letter nominating Boreup came from Becky Styninger and highlighted some of her volunteer work, particularly with St. Paul’s U.C.C., the Washington County Historical Society and the WCH Auxiliary.
“She’s volunteered for so many organizations, I’m sure that I will not begin to get them covered wrote Styninger.
Rosalee has volunteered in numerous roles within her church, St. Paul U.C.C., including as a vacation bible school teacher, a confirmation teacher, running a chili and bagel stand at the DuBois Center Fall Festival and as a member of the Soulful Singers Choir.
Boreup is also involved in the Friends of The Library, The Washington County Hospital Auxiliary, and is the board chairman of the Washington County Historical Society.
In the past Boreup has served on the Chamber of Commerce Board, The Nashville District 49 School Board, the school PSO, and was a member of the Trails Crossing Chapter of the Daughter of the American Revolution before it disbanded.
In politics, Boreup has served on the Washington County GOP Central Committee, as the Beacoup Township Precinct Chair, Republican, and has been a poll judge in Nashville and Richview.
