Leslie Bohn of Jackson, N.J., wife of PBA and USBC Hall of Famer Parker Bohn III, has been selected to receive the Volunteer of the Year Award by the International Bowling Campus Youth Committee.
The award is presented each year to an adult volunteer who displays outstanding efforts to foster, organize and promote certified youth bowling at the local, state and/or national level.
“I simply do this to help promote the sport that has given so much to myself and our family,” she said. “The memories that are created among the bowlers and families will last a lifetime.”
Bohn is involved in organizing fundraisers for youth bowling, making sure kids are aware of scholarship opportunities, organizes and runs the Parker Bohn III Youth Scholarship Tournament, and actively recruits teams to participate in the USBC Youth Open. So far, she has recruited 31 teams that will make the trip to Cleveland this summer for the Youth Open.
