YACer of the Month: Katie Flint
E-NewsKatie joined the Midland Area Community Foundation YAC last fall, "hit the ground running and hasn't stopped yet," according to her YAC Advisor Lynn Heil. Often new members take a while to acclimate, but not Katie. Her involvement includes serving as the YAC ambassador at the community foundation's annual meeting last year, being elected as YAC vice president and serving as one of two youth trustees on the foundation's board of trustees. Heil said she is impressed with all that Katie has accomplished and "she is an absolute joy to work with!"
Congratulations Katie!
