Buffalo Mayor Honors Local High School Student

Sadie Gruntmeir

Buffalo Mayor Mike Johnson made a proclamation at the city council's Tuesday meeting, commending Buffalo High School senior Sadie Gruntmeir for her selfless work in the community as a volunteer.

Mayor Johnson said that local communities are helped through volunteers who are the unrecognized and unsung heroes of our society.
Gruntmeir was recently named as one of Wyoming's Distinguished Finalists in the 2017 Prudential Spirit of Community Awards Program, which the mayor said exemplifies the value of volunteer community service.

Mayor Johnson said Gruntmeir is a student volunteering time with no expectation of reward other than the gratification that comes from helping others.
He said she is a role model to other youth and adults in the community.

According to the Prudential Spirit of Community Awards Program's website, Gruntmeir volunteers two hours a week with Peer Helpers, a program that pairs elementary students with high school students. She has acted as a mentor to young children in both her junior and senior years to help them with academics and to gain confidence.
