SOLitude’s Volunteer of the Quarter Supports Agricultural Education
October 26th, 2016
Through its corporate volunteering program, The SOLution, SOLitude Lake Management, an industry leader in lake and pond management and related environmental services for the United States, named Vincent Giordano, Aquatic Technician, as Volunteer of the Quarter for the third quarter of 2016. Vincent volunteered an impressive 58 hours in his community from July through September, with the majority of his efforts focused on working with the Future Farmers of America to support local schools through agricultural education and leadership development.
Vincent joined his local chapter of the Future Farmers of America (FFA) in Warren County, New Jersey during his freshman year of high school. The FFA’s mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education. After graduating from high school, Vincent remained committed to the FFA and its mission by becoming an alumni member and an officer. He enjoys helping with fundraising events and passing along his experience to younger members of the organization.
This summer, Vincent was instrumental in making the FFA’s annual fundraising event, the Warren County Farmers Fair, a huge success. He volunteered his time during each day of the nine-day event, helping with a wide variety of tasks including running a car show, working a hot balloon race, and wrapping gift baskets. The money raised was used to support a local school program that educates the public on the impact that the FFA has on students and farming.
“We admire Vincent for his dedication to supporting the youth in his community through his involvement with the Future Farmers of America,” said Tracy Fleming, Director of Marketing. “He is a valued member of SOLitude’s Mid-Atlantic team, and an inspiration to us all.”
