Morrisville , VT - Devan Hill, a senior at People's Academy, was honored with the 2012 Top Youth Volunteer Award by the March of Dimes Vermont Chapter at the Stowe Signature Chefs Event at the Town & Country Resort October 21.

Devan has been raising funds to support the March of Dimes since he started participating in the annual walks with his mother Cheryl and the Union Bank team as a young boy.

He took his role seriously making his own requests for sponsorship and started his own team before he reached High School: Kids Against Birth Defects. Sometimes with friends, often on his own, Devan continued to expand his fundraising efforts and quickly became Top Youth Walker in the Lamoille March for Babies, and then Top Youth Walker in Vermont, an achievement he has maintained for the past three years, raising over $1,000 on an annual basis for stronger, healthier babies in our communities.

This past year, in addition to raising $1,500 for his own team, Devan worked with school officials to organize a Coin Collection Competition at People's Academy and raised over $330 to further support the March of Dimes and build awareness of their mission to improve the health of babies among a whole new generation of supporters.

The Morrisville Rotary recognized Devan's accomplishment by contributing $100 to fund a pizza party celebration for the winning team!

"Devan is a wonderful youth advocate," said Jeff Coslett, Senior Vice President, Human Resources and Branch Administration. We consider him a part of the Union Bank family, and thank him and the entire Hill family for their dedication to community."
