Last, but certainly not least, we have Engaging Creative Minds (ECM) volunteer Emily Heeke. Emily was always willing to take on any task set in front of her and truly made a difference in our organization.
ECM Director of Development, Strategy & Communications, Andrew McGlaughon, shared about his experience working with Emily, “Emily was awesome, she went above and beyond what was asked of her and really took ownership over the project(s) she was assigned. Having her in the office was like having another full-time employee as she worked to build a real understanding of our programs and how/why we do what we do!”
