Garden City branch announces February winners

Congratulations to our Garden City Branch Monthly Winners!

Volunteers of the Month: Our Volunteer Instructors

"I nominated Susan Rivera, Monica Martinez, Andra Downing, and Athena Towns for volunteer of the month because of the work that they put in.  They all could have choose to do something else with their time but choose to teach a class her at the YMCA because it is what they love to do.  Susan teaches Intro to Bootcamp, Monica teaches step class, and Andra and Athena both teach spin class and they all do an excellent job at it.  Each one of their class times are early evening when they are done with their day job when they can go home and spend time with family but they come and visit us first.  Thank you ladies for your hard work and dedication to the YMCA." ~ Steven Lynch, Healthy Living Director


Member of the Month: Juan Montelongo

"Juan Montelongo is our Member of the Month because he tops our Biggest User board almost every month. He comes in frequently. For the month of January he visited the YMCA 39 times. But for the year of 2017 he visited the YMCA 288 times!!! This is why he is always on the list for the Biggest User and you will sure find a smile on his face every time he comes into the YMCA. Stop Juan the next time you see him and tell him CONGRATS! Keep up the good work Juan! ~ Crystal Ibarra, Membership Director


Employee of the Month: Jesus Nevarez

"Jesus started with the Y back in September and has been an AMAZING asset to our Childcare program! He is currently attending GCCC and is here from Ulysses! He began at our Georgia Matthews site as a counselor under the direction of Maria Ortega who is our site director and he has flourished. He is ALWAYS looking for new and innovative projects or crafts to do with the kiddos and LOVES to see their growth and progress. He reached out to me about a month or so after starting and asked about any other positions that were available within the Y that he could look into as well? I had him reach our to Crystal Ibarra and the rest is history as he is also working the Welcome Center now! Jesus has been a HUGE addition to our YMCA family and I couldn’t be more proud of him and his ambition! THANKS Jesus for ALL you do!!!" ~ Krystal Richardson, Family Director
