2016 YP of the Year: Lindsey Phillips
Category : YP of the Year
Each year, YPN recognizes one member who has proven themselves to be dedicated to the betterment of Muscatine and the YPN organization. This year, the leadership group has unanimously selected Lindsey Phillips, current director of the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. We reached out to some of those who work with Lindsey to get a more rounded picture of her dedication:
“Lindsey first started at Big Brothers Big Sisters as enrollment and matching staff, recruiting, interviewing, training and matching children with adult and high school volunteers. She was generally the first face volunteers, kids and their families saw upon enrolling in the program. She treated everyone with kindness and generosity, making them feel welcome and at ease. Upon transitioning into the role as program director, she continues to exude that same hands-on approach, welcoming Bigs, Littles and their families Her commitment to the program has never wavered as she upholds the mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.” – Jessica H.
The leadership group at YPN is extremely grateful for the work that Lindsey does each and every day to make sure that our events are well-organized and that our members know what other activities are upcoming. Lindsey is most often the first in line to volunteer herself for any project.
Congratulations Lindsey, you are a great asset to our group.
