We are pleased to announce the recipient of the 1st Quarter “Make A Difference Award” is Kyle Wayne!

Kyle is a Lifeguard at the Geneseo Community Center. He was nominated by Marty Golby. Here is what Marty had to say . . .

“I swim laps during the week at 11:00 am and on Tuesdays, Kyle is the lifeguard. I have become acquainted with Kyle the past couple of years and I enjoy our short visits. What always amazes me about Kyle is he always asks how I am doing or what I have been up to. He takes an interest and I appreciate that. However, what really sets Kyle apart is the interest he takes in getting to know and respecting the older regulars (mostly ladies) who exercise in the pool regularly. They all love him for the same reason, he takes an interest in them, cares about their lives, and sincerely wants to know them and wants to help improve their day." Thank you Kyle!


Above and Beyond

Geneseo Park District Above & Beyond Award Winner

The Above & Beyond Award Program is a Peer-to-Peer recognition award given to one employee quarterly. An employee can be recognized by a co-worker for their outstanding performance.

We are pleased to announce the recipient of the 1st Quarter “Above and Beyond Award” is Destiny Coolbaugh!

Destiny is a Building Supervisor at the Geneseo Community Center. Destiny was nominated by Paula Fowler. Here is what Paula had to say . . .

“Destiny so deserves this award. The week of January 7th – 11th she was so extremely helpful to me. The front desk was swamped with members and customers and I struggled to keep up. Destiny stepped in and checked in multiple members. She also answered questions and gave out waivers that needed to be signed to help speed up the registration process. She is always a happy and upbeat person, such a joy to work with. Always ready and willing to help. She has earned a nickname from me, Miss Sunshine and Light.” Thank you Destiny!
