We are pleased to honor Donisha Reed, an AmeriCorps volunteer who has served the Monroe County YMCA for the past seven months working with the Energize program. Energize is a program that brings healthy fitness, eating, and lifestyle education to classrooms across Monroe County in innovative and hands-on ways.
Donisha has worked very hard to expand the Energize program by developing new programs and instructing our students with enthusiasm. She took the initiative to apply for a grant through the American Public Health Program at Indiana University – and she was successful! The funds from this grant will help purchase supplies and provide the students will some fun extra events.
Donisha has a strong background in health issues and her talents were expanded to our Energize classes on a daily basis. She is completing her service to the Monroe County YMCA and has accepted a job in Wichita Falls, TX, as a Health Director for the Bill Bartley YMCA. Congratulations, Donisha!
AmeriCorps engages more than 50,000 Americans each year to meet community needs in community education. The Monroe County YMCA has hosted an AmeriCorps member for the past seven years. Supervised by Nancy Wroblewski, our AmeriCorps volunteers have contributed a great deal to the Y, helping us expand our impact on the Monroe County community.
Donisha is finishing her service at the Y by creating promotional materials for our Healthy Kids Day, which will occur April 12th.
We wish Donisha the best of luck in her new YMCA adventure. She will serve our mission in an outstanding manner.
