Area 12 Volunteer Spotlight: Chan Hebert


Chan Hebert heard an interview on the radio asking for volunteers for Fall Classic in Waco in 2005. She volunteered both days and LOVED it, and she has been volunteering ever since.

Hebert has continued to volunteer at Fall Classic at Aquatics competition, and began volunteering at Summer Games in 2011 and Winter Games in 2012. And if that weren’t enough, she also serves as the Area 12 Volunteer Coordinator and has been a part of most of the area competitions doing everything from getting other volunteers checked in, helping with an individual skills event, selling souvenirs, and coordinating/handing out awards. Hebert also serves on the Area Sports Management Team and Torch Run committee helping out at Tip-a-Cops and Polar Plunge. Just when you think there wouldn’t be anything left for her to do, Hebert recently went through Basketball coaches training.

A truly outstanding volunteer, she says she is so glad to be a part of this great organization. “I love every minute of it.”
