SOLitude Lake Management Names Aaron Cushing Volunteer of the Quarter
July 31st, 2013
Through its corporate volunteering program, The SOLution, SOLitude Lake Management has named Aaron Cushing, Fisheries Biologist, as their Volunteer of the Quarter for Second Quarter of 2013.
Aaron has shown his love of nature and the water while working to enrich the lives of others through aquatic education and preservation. He was the lead coordinator of a team volunteer event at Graves Mountain Lodge in Syria, Virginia and was instrumental in obtaining a large fish tank and conceptualizing a Shad Spawning Obstacle Course game and educational lessons to teach children more about fish habits and nature. He is constantly seeking additional environmental and educational volunteer opportunities for The SOLution as well as pursuing his own philanthropic passions.
“Aaron is a true steward of the environment,” said Kevin Tucker, owner. “He continually digs into every project and opportunity from The SOLution program and gives 110%.”
The SOLution is a company-wide program that encourages the company and all employees to strive to “create a better world” through volunteerism, community outreach, sustainability and environmental consciousness. SOLitude’s company leadership feels it is important to not only be good stewards of the environment and good corporate citizens, but also to fulfill company core values to “take action and be accountable” and to “protect and respect nature.” To participate or share a non-profit’s goals for consideration in The SOLution, contact Tracy King at [email protected].
