Ingrid Islas, right, accepts the Andrew J. Dockery Teen Volunteer of the Year award from Bethany Magnus, teen committee co-chair for The Medical Center Auxiliary, on Tuesday, July 17, at The Venue at Friendship Springs in Flowery Branch. Islas began volunteering with The Medical Center Auxiliary in 2016 and contributed 338 hours of service.
Ingrid Islas watched as her sister, Indira, volunteered with the Medical Center Auxiliary at the Northeast Georgia Medical Center throughout high school. After hearing her sister come home and talk about how much she loved it and how much of a difference she felt she was making at the hospital, Ingrid Islas knew she had to do the same.
