With 2017 barely in our past, PAL wants to recognize two outstanding VPD officers who went above and beyond in supporting PAL over the last quarter of the year. These officers are none other than Danielle Wass and Clesson Werner.
Both Danielle and Clesson ASKED us if they could be a part of supporting our mentoring programs. First it was Danielle who stepped up to support our girls group and actually flew to Washington DC with two PAL teens to a leadership summit. Next was Clesson who started by coming to our literacy events, but then learned about our Prospere groups.
As we moved into the fall of 2017, both of them continued to seek us out and find out ways to support our programs, asking us before we could even seek them out. Both are mentors for our Prospere group at Wy’East Middle School. Danielle also supports our girls group and Clesson supports another Prospere group at Legacy High School. They both continue to visit literacy events as well.
It makes us smile when our officers invest so much in our youth. Truly without them, PAL would not be and their selflessness is inspiring.
So thank you Danielle & Clesson for giving your time, energy, & resources to PAL youth. We are forever grateful for your dedication, both in your job and in creating a safer community.
