What is the difference between a Super Hero and a dedicated Volunteer? The answer is simple. The difference is the cape. One such volunteer who is certainly a super hero in her community is Nancy Kennedy Barnett.
For over 25 years, Nancy has been an active volunteer in her community of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. While many could easily say that she has done enough for others, there is no slowing down of Nancy's volunteer and community service work. With her vast knowledge and experience with the local JCC (Jewish Community Center), Nancy was selected as one of three co-chairs for the 2015 JCC Maccabi Games which will be held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The JCC Maccabi Games is an Olympic-style sporting competition held each summer in North America and is the second largest organized sports program for Jewish teenagers in the world. It is certainly a great honor to be appointed to such a position. Undoubtedly, Nancy will spend countless hours helping organize and coordinate the event which will bring athletes in from all over the Nation.
While Nancy does not have a cape or the ability to fly or leap over tall buildings, she does have a solid track record in the areas of leadership and team building. Because of all of her work with the Harry & Rose Samson Family JCC and the surrounding community, Nancy was awarded the 2014 Esther Leah Ritz Emerging JCC Leader Award. She recently traveled to San Diego to receive this pretigious award and complete leadership training with 50 of the top emerging leaders for other JCCs throughout the North America. As noted by Nancy, "I feel blessed to be able to give back to my community. It is an honor to serve and help make the community a better place for all."
