Renee M. Maxwell
John W. Foust, Dranesville District, Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, noted that “Ms. Maxwell gives of herself time and time again without the need for accolades or applause. She epitomizes ‘giving back to the community.’ I consider her one of the most effective volunteers in the County. The people of Herndon and Reston are fortunate to have her in their community.”
Ms. Maxwell has touched and improved the lives of thousands of Herndon and Reston community members of varying abilities, socio-economic statuses, and ages—from the very young kindergarten student to the senior citizen. She is dedicated to making her community a better place for all people, but particularly for those who need a helping hand.
Renee is a member of the Service & Mission Team with Trinity Presbyterian Church and serves as a liaison for Trinity’s partnership with Herndon Elementary School. Since 2003, Ms. Maxwell has volunteered with Fairfax County Public Schools in several capacities, from serving as Vice President of Productions for Drama Boosters to working on various community outreach programs. Currently, she leads publicity for Herndon Village Network and Food For Neighbors. Lastly, as a member of VOICE (Virginians Organized for Interfaith Community Engagement), Ms. Maxwell works to bring accessible after-school programming to Title 1 schools in Herndon and Reston.
