MOLINE, ILLINOIS - WQPT honored its youngest Volunteer of the Year naming Allison Foster, a 14-year-old freshman at Rock Island High School, the 2013 recipient.

Foster was presented the award by WQPT General Manager Mary Pruess and WQPT Special Projects Coordinator Bea Brasel at a breakfast celebration Aug. 7.

"Allison became involved with WQPT as a member of our Kids Club. As the years have gone by, Allison has continued as a volunteer, including becoming our 'go-to' talent for costume characters," said Brasel. "Volunteers are important to WQPT. In our 30-year history we have relied on more than 7,000 volunteers in various capacities doing everything from stuffing envelopes to serving as pledge talent."

WQPT is a media service of Western Illinois University located in Moline, Illinois.
