Text Box: Give a brief statement (150 words or less) why this nominee should receive the Ambassador Award
The CBPW is nominating Emma Valenteen as 2006 Ambassador of the Year, and Pilot also wishes to do so. 
Pilot members first met Emma through InterService meetings, and from the first, have been impressed with her spirit of volunteerism.  Whatever community need was discussed,  Emma immediately offered to provide a helping hand..  When the need was something she could not assist directly, her intimate knowledge of the community helped find an available service.  She has a generous heart and, most helpful in her work with Compassionate Friends, a sympathetic ear and loving spirit.  As you can see from the list above, Emma assists a wide variety of people, from the young (Youth Leagues, Booster Club) to the ill (Relay for Life), to the elderly (Young at Heart), to those at the end of life (Compassionate Friends, funeral assistance).  She is truly ambassador material  each day representing the best kind of loving, caring, neighborliness that makes a community proud to claim her.
