Veronica Bou Onk is the Marketing team’s fabulous intern. She is a great writer and quick too! She has helped us write press releases and media advisories as well as research. She also is eager to help with anything else we need such as coordinating outreach materials and clipping media articles. Veronica has been working with the Marketing team for about a year. She is here every Friday She loves libraries and loves to read. She is a student of St. Mary’s University, and her internship is also part of a mentorship program for her studies. Thank you, Veronica, for dedicating your time to our team.
With a spring in her step and a smile on her face, ten year old Sabrina Chowdhury was on a mission to clean up the riverside banks at Brackenridge Park. She picked up several aluminum cans, wrappers, and other item from the river. The best part about this Volunteer Star is that she also rescued two injured baby egrets. Way to Go Sabrina and thank you for your awesome example of how youth volunteers can make a difference in parks!
If you have enjoyed the great photos of cats in our care on the ACS Facebook pages and on PetHarbor lately, you can thank Flor Hernandez. Flor comes every Sunday to retake photos of the cats in our care in order to give them a better profile online and her efforts are working! Flor has enjoyed what she does for ACS so much, her co-workers even caught on. They recently formed a bowling team called the “Alley Cats” and used Flor’s photos for their t-shirts, giving ACS shelter cats even more exposure in a fun and unique way!
Trail Watch Volunteers
Trail Watch volunteers work to spread the word about trail safety and etiquette along the Howard W. Peak Greenway system. After attending an orientation session where they learn about park safety, they volunteer a minimum of four hours a month. That’s dedication! Each Trail Watch volunteer wears a bight yellow vest and carries a bike pump, tire patches, safety flyers and a first aid kit along with them as they bike, walk and run along the trails. These volunteers love their park trails and are committed to making them safe for all users.
The first “class” of Trail Watch Volunteers as of June 2014:
- Gina Anderson - Robert Armstrong - Eddie Banks
- Holley Banks - Arnold Benitez - Randy Cisneros
- Erica Cornejo - Michelle Geyer - Fernando Gonzalez
- Amy Hamrick - Laura Matthews - James Matthews
- Marika Misangyi - Jeff Moore - Marian Osborn
- Stephen Osborn - Roger Scheider - Frank Trevino
We want to thank these volunteers for making our trails safer one (s)mile at a time.
