Stephanie Kramer, Summit resident and Sales Associate at Lois Schneider Realtor, will be honored on Wednesday, June 12 as a recipient of the Summit Area YMCA 2013 Volunteer of the Year Award. Stephanie is being recognized as a “Living Our Cause Volunteer” – an award which is given to volunteers based on their leadership roles on branch boards, board committees and special events planning committees, as well as their ability to assist in raising funds to help support the many causes associated with the YMCA.
An active board member for two years, Stephanie has recently expanded her involvement by joining the ACHIEVE committee and the Laugh Out Loud Comedy Event committee. “The Y’s altruistic mission is the reason I became so committed,” Kramer said. “I am particularly inspired by Y programs and services for youth, which fill a gap in our community – promoting the importance of education will set kids on the path to a bright future. “
As a local Realtor, Stephanie has the unique opportunity to educate her clients on the benefits and the importance of the YMCA to our community. She is described by her fellow committee members as being thoughtful, passionate, selfless and incredibly humble – enthusiastically going above and beyond in her involvement with the organization, and inspiring others to join in her support of the YMCA.
The Summit Area YMCA is one of the leading charitable organizations in our community, with a mission that focuses on nurturing the potential of every child, promoting healthy living and encouraging a sense of social responsibility. Lois Schneider Realtor salutes the ongoing efforts of this notable organization and we are thrilled to offer our congratulations to Stephanie!
