One of the veterans, Mr. Bill Donaldson, won the "Volunteer of the Year" award for Community Partners in Education 2016. These volunteers come to Pinevale on a weekly basis and work very hard. Mr. Bill Donaldson is known to be at Pinvale Elementary every day that the school is open. Mr. McClendon said, "We just want to spur the children to move up to the next level, then the next, and the next." The Vets are also challenging other organizations to come out and help. He says, "It's a win-win!"
