This year’s Saint Lucie County Retired Educator Volunteer of the year is Cliff Burgner. He had over 900 volunteer hours. Cliff volunteers weekly in a kitchen that provides meals for those in need and he has been a part of the health system for over 12 years. Driven by his passion, caring and desire to serve others, Cliff volunteers at two very important places: the health field and feeding those in need. Of great significance is his dependability as he often fills in and substitutes at a minute’s notice. It was stated that he is fully committed to the job and will stay until it is finished. Cliff’s amiable personality and great smile are a perfect fit for his service areas. Congratulation!
