In 2016 Alexis McCoy began volunteering with the City of Columbia’s Parks and Recreation Department. In eight short months she has made quite an impact on the special events team. From helping with events to engaging the public, Alexis makes it all look easy.
Alexis’ great attitude and consistent desire to go above and beyond have made pulling off large events much easier! When asked why she volunteers, Alexis said “volunteering has given me a very unique outlet to create lasting friendships, enhance my skill-set, and grow. There are no two events that are ever alike, and because of this I never cease to learn something new, connect with others, or have fun doing what I love.” We are grateful to all of our volunteers, including Alexis, who have made a difference at these and other events.
Alexis’ supervisor Stacey Kulik had the following to say: “”Alexis has volunteered at several Parks and Recreation events in the past year and she has provided outstanding support. She always has a smile on her face, treats everyone around her with kindness and respect and works hard at the task she is assigned. I am always happy to see her name on the volunteer list knowing she will bring something positive to the event.” Thank you, Alexis!
