The Parasol Community Foundation Wednesday recognized nine AmeriCorps volunteers for a year's worth of service and dedication to the Incline Village community.

Recognized volunteer Elizabeth Bancroft, who for the past year has been volunteering with Project Mana, a non-profit hunger relief organization, will stay in Incline as the new volunteer coordinator for the PCF. Bancroft, who plans on attending Columbia Teachers' College in the fall of 2007, said that her experience with Project MANA helped with her decision to eventually go back to school.

"With Project MANA I got to teach several classes to second graders at elementary schools in Incline and Truckee," she said. "I saw some of the problems we're having with obesity and it really had an effect on me wanting to get my degree."
