On Thursday, United Way of Central Virginia honored Sweet Briar voice instructor Marcia Thom-Kaley with the Volunteer of the Year award during a ceremony for its “Opening Doors … Changing Lives” campaign.
The award means a lot to Lynchburg native Thom-Kaley, who has volunteered with the organization for five years.
“I am so honored to be this year’s recipient — especially when so very many people volunteer their time and efforts to this wonderful organization,” she said.
Each fall, Thom-Kaley directs and choreographs “Feenomenal Follies,” a variety show that celebrates United Way partner agencies. Local entertainers and “business folks” from across the community come together to lip sync and dance, Thom-Kaley said.
“[The show] brings out the hidden performer in everyone — we all have a ball!”
