Youth Volunteer of the Year - Ingrid Cruz, Eugene Teen Courts.

Ingrid, a 2009 Churchill High School graduate, served as a case presenter, juror and court clerk for Eugene's Teen Courts, which conducts hearings for first-time juvenile defenders.  Cruz, who is bilingual, also helped Spanish-speaking families interpret legal issues.  She juggled these responsibilities with studying and working to support herself and her 12 year old brother.

"Ingrid has taken on for more family and work responsibilities than would normally be expected of a teen.  Despite all this, Ingrid is an excellent student with big goals, and she gives of herself to Teen Courts.  She is amazing."  - Bruce Steinmetz, Eugene Teen Courts
