Therressa is the Aquatics Coordinator at the Geneseo Community Center. She was nominated by Bethany & Michael Winkleman and Rachel Lawson. Here is what they had to say . . .

“We have two young children that have taken private swim lessons with Therresa for over two years. Our family and our babysitter would love to nominate her for the Make A Difference Award for the district. She is so wonderful with the kids, caring, attentive, empathetic, passionate, and inclusive. We have seen our kids become more confident in the pool, enjoy their lessons, and enjoy their time with Therresa. She is a model employee and coach to the kids of this town."  Thank you Therresa!


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 4th Quarter ”Above and Beyond Award” is Anne Nelms!

Anne is the Marketing Coordinator at the Geneseo Park District. Anne was nominated by Paula Verbeck. Here is what Paula had to say . . .

”I would like to nominate Anne for the Above & Beyond Award for her work with the Parktoberfest Committee that goes above and beyond the scope of her normal duties. Parktoberfest falls during a very busy time at the Park District, especially for the marketing and finance department (winter activity guide and budget time). Anne had to work not only with staff members but also with volunteers who had their own time tables and expectations. She exhibited flexibility and cooperation that helped make for a successful event benefitting the community. She provided quality marketing and coordination that provides for a positive image for both the Park District and the Park District Foundation. Great job Anne and thanks for going Above and Beyond.” Thank you Anne!
