As a parent of children who have participated in both the House and Travel levels within VYS, I feel very strongly that it is my opportunity and responsibility to give back. VYS has been fantastic for my daughters and has helped them grow as people. They have developed life-long friendships and learned about the success achieved through teamwork. They have learned from great coaches and role models at all levels. The sense of camaraderie and involvement is not only contained with the children though as I have always enjoyed my interactions with the parents on the teams my daughters have participated.
This last year on the Board has been a very worthwhile experience. We have been an engaged group who have had hearty debates, but still are able to reach consensus. At the end of the day, we have all worked towards the VYS Vision. As VYS moves forward with a new structure in place through a very qualified Executive Director, experienced Technical Director, and a strong staff, I look forward to where VYS is going. The Board is evolving into a more strategic focus and as such, I look forward to being an active participant.
