“The goal of any LifeChanger is to make a positive difference in the lives of students, their families and the local community. Matt Kovacs is a self-effacing, humble teacher who has quietly become an incredible LifeChanger,” said Madison Area YMCA Executive Director Harriet McCarter. “Mr. Matt, as he is fondly referred to by the students, is not just a LifeChanger because of what he does, but because of who he is. He lives the Y's core values of caring, respect, honesty and social responsibility. He is the unique individual who can make every student and every individual feel like the most important person in the room. Mr. Matt is so much more than an educator; he is a mentor, a sounding board, a role model, a standard bearer, a friend and a supporter who will never let anyone down.”

 

The Madison Area YMCA is a 501c3 cause-driven charitable organization dedicated to strengthening community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
