TRIP bids adieu - and thanks -- to Americorps*VISTA Volunteer Jeanette Nicholson. We can hardly believe that Jeanette's one year position here ends this month; the year has definitely flown by! Serving as TRIP's Outreach Worker, she has been so helpful in supporting various neighborhood groups, TNAC (Troy Neighborhoods Action Council), and the Vacant Properties Workgroup. She worked hard behind the scenes to ensure the success of community events like North Central's National Night Out and Earth Day cleanups, Uptown's Harvest Festival, TRIP's Open House at 2232 5th Avenue and more. She was a frequent face in the neighborhoods as part of TRIP's commitment to community-building.
Hilary Lamishaw, TRIP's Director of Community Affairs, claims, "Jeanette has brought such value to TRIP with her passion for Troy's neighborhoods. Yet what I'll miss most is her smile, enthusiasm and gentle nature. She was really a pleasure to work with. We're lucky that Jeanette is a long-time homeowner in Troy. We know we'll be seeing her out and about in Troy!"
From all of us at TRIP: "Thanks so much, Jeanette! It's been great having you as part of our team."
