Valerie Denghel is the founder of the First Day Shoe Fund, a nonprofit which helps low-income students at Kalamazoo Public Schools.
The organization provides new shoes to kindergarten through third-grade students who need them.
For Denghel, winner of the STAR (Sharing Time and Resources) Award in the Career Volunteer Category, the cause was an obvious one.
