April 2012 Volunteer of the Month Marco Tapia

  At some point, we can all benefit from stepping back, and looking at the big picture. When we do that, we can see the world in a different light, and rearrange our priorities. For our April Volunteer of the Month- Marco Tapia, serving as host of the CAT-TV program:Making A Differencehas blessed him with the ability to “see the big picture” and recognize what matters most to him.

Making A Difference really brings me back to what is more important than anything else, at least in my world, which is giving back to others. I have been so blessed to be able to interact with people who are dedicated to giving back, and they do it for nothing. It is just phenomenal,” Marco says.

Making A Difference is a show dedicated to highlighting volunteers and volunteer opportunities. City of Columbia volunteer coordinators boast about Marco’s ability to make guests feel right at home.

Marco has served as the host for the local cable access TV show for almost two years. Add that to the multiple volunteer positions he has held over the last 31 years, and it is clear that Marco values giving back to Columbia. Marco proclaims very passionately, “Serving others is what life is all about; it doesn’t get any better than that.”
