Superstar in the Community

Lieutenant Kathy McNicholas, Prevent Coalition volunteer

Over the last 15 years, Lieutenant Kathy McNicholas of the Vancouver Police Department has supported Prevent Coalition to connect communities, build resilience and prevent youth substance use. Kathy currently serves on Prevent Coalition’s Steering Committee and as Co-Chair for the Drug Take Back Committee that plans and coordinates the twice-a-year Drug Take Back events. On June 6, during the annual coalition appreciation picnic Prevent celebrated Kathy’s commitment to youth and dedicated service to the prevention community. When asked what motivates her to give back, Kathy responded, “I love helping the community be a better place to live.”

We thank you Kathy for all that you do to serve and protect our community and to help make Vancouver a great place to live and raise a family.

Wild ESDers at OMSI

[Not] Caught on Camera (because she hates having her picture taken) was Tracy Collins of ECE at OMSI last Sunday volunteering at the Science Playground. Tracy is a “Master Volunteer” because she’s been volunteering regularly for over 5 years!

Fun fact: Tracy’s mom sews the fur-tastic animal costumes for the kids to make-believe in. Shown here are the eagle and the latest addition, a wolf (modeled by Melissa Burt’s oldest kids).
