The defining mark of a genuine vounteer is to be truly and selflessly willing to assist. That said, not everyone who engages in volunteerism is hugely motivated by purely unselfish intentions. As unpalatable as it sounds, there really are volunteers who are in it for reasons that have little to do with philanthropy. We are proud to categorically state that Zachery Lyons isn’t one of them. Zac, as we fondly refer to him, has been willing to do anything and everything to help out. He has helped with every portion of the complex R&P process—from assuring cases to closing files (beginning to end), including taking clients to appointments, completing paperwork and helping with donations and apartment setups. The process calls for superior concentration and meticulous attention to detail with zero margins of error. It also involves employing utmost patience in attending to clients from different countries, who oftentimes arrive with extremely limited, if any, English speaking skills. Zac has been more than willing to complete any task asked of him. He has done so with a keenness and fortitude equal to none. Although he first came to NICE as an intern, he chose to stay on as a volunteer when his term ended. Today, Zac continues to be a valuable asset to NICE and the R&P team. So it is with great pride that we the entire staff of NICE, wholly and unreservedly, crown Zachery Lyons Volunteer of the Month. Go Zac!
