It always helps to see a warm and friendly face when heading to warm up for that all-important test or jump round. In this series, the United States Evening Association (USEA) is partnering with Athletux to feature those around us who help make these events happen, the volunteers.

Do you know a volunteer who should be nominated as Volunteer of the Month? We are looking for our next feature.
