Georgetown, Texas–TASUS encourages their employees to give back to the communities they live in by volunteering in some way. TASUS also understands the importance of the care and education of our youth. This is why we are excited to share the stories of three employees from the Texas facility who volunteered their time to better the lives of some of the local youth.
Cody Coburn is an Automation Technician at the Texas facility during the day, but in his free time he volunteers as an assistant coach for the under 5 age group for the Georgetown Youth Soccer Association. Cody says he finds it very rewarding to coach his daughter Kalynn, as well as the other children, teaching them the fundamentals of soccer as well as the importance of teamwork.
Diana Miranda also volunteers her time coaching young children. She is an assistant coach for a girls’ softball team during the spring and the fall seasons. Diana says it’s awesome to see the girls grow from T-ball to fast pitch and learn so much along the way.
Kim Mundy, Controller at TASUS Texas, volunteers her time by mentoring an at risk student through the Georgetown Independent School District. Kim is also a board member of the Partners in Education program, which works toward enhancing the education and services provided to at risk youth. In addition to that Kim works with the Georgetown Area Junior Forum, which provides meals to homeless high school students, cleaning and redecorating of the battered women’s shelter, and homework help for kids at the Boys and Girls Club. Kim says that programs like these make you feel like you can make a difference for those who don’t have what we have.
These three individuals are great examples of how you can improve the communities you live in by helping the youth. TASUS is always thrilled to receive stories of volunteerism from employees and encourages all employees to give back or volunteer in some way.
