Red-Vested Rockstar: Luke Waldbillig

Why he rocks: “I loved volunteering in my hometown, so as a college freshman at the University of St. Thomas I got involved with a student organization called Volunteers In Action (VIA), which led me to Children’s. I'm also involved with a campus ministry called Cru.  Here, a group of my fellow sophomores and I put together a team called ‘the Spoon Squad’, which works to find ways to intentionally serve others and help make new people feel welcome at our Wednesday night gathering. The reason the team is called the Spoon Squad is because of a quote we heard which states, "Forks stab, knives cut, but spoons serve, and we are called to serve."  This has become a life motto for me, and I love finding ways to share that message wherever I go.”

Red-Vested Rockstar: Valerie Beery

Why she rocks: “I had never stepped foot inside a hospital prior to applying to volunteer, but what sparked my interest was when my aunt Jana started to have some health issues. I chose Children’s because I have always loved playing with kids and I’m so glad I did! I am a senior at Edina high school while also attending Normandale Community College full-time through the PSEO program. I aspire to become a Pediatrician here at Children’s hospital. I am also currently in training to become a Certified Nursing Assistant this fall, and I work at Starbucks!”
