Margie Coggins has been a leader in Maricopa County working in the Volunteer Coordination field for over 21 years. She has been instrumental in connecting volunteers to agencies that desperately need them and for training people in what to expect from volunteers and how they can help agencies meet expectations. Her extraordinary work ethics at the Arizona Volunteer Center of Maricopa County helped bring people and agencies in need together for decades but especially during the Christmas season when volunteerism is most needed. As a leader in this field, Margie is the referral of choice for Courts, Judges, and hundreds of professionals across the county. If someone is having trouble placing a volunteer they turn to Margie. In addition to her superior work in the Volunteer field she has also dedicated six years of her life to helping children by serving on the Foster Care Review Board. With professionalism tempered by a kind heart she works to find children good homes with foster parents who care. Not only rewarding in it's own right, the excitement Margie feels when a child is placed can be seen on her face and in her step as she spreads the word about the foster care program. In closing I would like to add a personal note. I've known many professional women and have been happy to have worked with them over the years. However, I've never been so honored as I feel when I think of Margie Coggins. Margie is kind, considerate, humble, and generous to a extreme level with her time, her money and her experiences. I'm sure that there are many women who would be honored to be nominated for Woman of the Year, but I feel honored to be able to nominate Margie Coggins: a true honor that comes from the heart.
