Meet our people and learn why volunteerism matters

“I had a high school teacher who thought I’d be a good engineer so she gave me a pamphlet for a camp created by the Society of Women Engineers (SWE). I didn’t have any plans to attend but my Mom made me go. Now I volunteer with FIRST Robotics because it’s a great way to introduce kids to different experiences. Looking back, having someone guide me at a young age was a pivotal point for me. That teacher’s involvement in my life fueled my desire to become an engineer. I know how important it is to have a mentor. That’s what matters to me.”

“I grew up in the area and graduated from Benton Harbor High School. It’s a part of me so I wanted to give back to the school. I am active on the Benton Harbor school board and volunteer with the high school’s FIRST Robotics team. Volunteering is such a rewarding experience. You get to teach but you also get to learn. When you support the community, the community supports our business. Ultimately, when you volunteer, you go beyond yourself to help a person, a school and even a community be better. That’s what matters to me.”

“Some people volunteer for their kids’ baseball teams because they know the sport. I volunteer with FIRST Robotics because technology is something I know. Using my skills to contribute to the student’s development creates a bond based on a shared interest. It’s great to see these kids get so excited as they are working together to solve a problem like a broken robot. But what’s most important is that you can see how the experience is positively impacting the students. By volunteering, we are investing in our future employees. That’s what matters to me.”

“Some people give a donation of money or clothing but I choose to give my time and talent. I volunteer for FIRST Robotics using my sales and marketing strengths. Once the robot is complete, the kids need to know how to show off what they’ve built and present their accomplishments to the judges. It’s amazing to see a student who may have started off on the sidelines, develop confidence knowing they’ve created a brochure that appeals to different audiences. To see these kids emerge into leaders…that’s what matters to me.”

“When I started volunteering with FIRST Robotics, I had twin boys in high school. My boys were my inspiration. Although I’m not an engineer, I was able to use my finance background for fund raising which helped start the team at Lakeshore. There is a need for people of all backgrounds because there are a variety of jobs for the mentors. Volunteering is so rewarding because you see a diverse group of kids come together for a common purpose. My boys are now both at the University of Michigan pursuing degrees in engineering. It’s amazing to be a part of a team that helps the kids grow. That’s what matters to me.”
