Bozeman Health Volunteer Tom Kuntz Receives Statement of Recognition in the Congressional Record

07/26/2016

Once a week, Tom Kuntz drives from Ennis to Bozeman to volunteer as an escort at Bozeman Health. He also is a dedicated volunteer at the Ennis Community Children’s School, for which he was recently recognized by Sen. Steve Daines as “Montanan of the Week.”

Kuntz, an Ennis resident since 2014, is a weekly volunteer at the school and lends a hand whenever and wherever he can. Lacy Keller, Director of the Community School, said “He comes in every week, hangs out with the kids, comes on field trips, fixes our bikes and broken toys, mows the lawn, he does whatever he can for us and the kids.”

Sen. Daines called Kuntz “a selfless volunteer who donates his time and money and expects very little in return.” On numerous occasions, Kuntz has purchased items out of his own pocket to help out with maintenance and building projects at the school. Most recently, Kuntz helped to complete a garden for the school so that students can grow vegetables and cultivate a firsthand knowledge of agriculture.

The Senator submitted a statement of recognition in the official Congressional Record, the document that reflects the official proceedings of Congress.
