Georgine Hertzwig of Port Washington wins Exceptional Parent Volunteer Award

NEWPORT, R.I. (Nov. 6, 2017) – Georgine Hertzwig of Port Washington, N.Y., whose son Tyler plays baseball as a member of Salve Regina University’s senior class, was presented with the Exceptional Parent Volunteer Award during Salve’s recent Fall Festival Weekend celebration.

The award recognizes Hertzwig for her steadfast support of the university’s baseball program, and as an orientation leader and resource for parents of Salve Regina’s first-year students.

“From the moment we stepped on the Salve campus in the fall of 2014 to move my son Tyler in for freshman year, I knew that he had chosen the perfect college for his next step in life,” Hertzwig says. “The Salve community has become part of my extended family.”

Hertzwig supported the university’s Brother Reynolds Field renovation project and continues to work closely with Head Coach Eric Cirella, his staff and parents to help with fundraising for the many other financial needs of the program. She has also participated on an orientation panel for freshman parents, and has hosted social events for new university parents. 

“We truly are a Seahawk baseball family, and the sense of team is clearly evident on and off the field,” she says. “The thought of being able to share the journey we have had at Salve and give insight to parents as they prepared to send their children off in the fall was amazing.” 

Her message to others is simple, but important. “Please step in, step up and help contribute to the lives of the community and help give back to Salve!”
