VISTA of the Month

The FIRST VISTA program is proud to sponsor “VISTA of the Month”, a program through which VISTA members, Site Supervisors, or other key adult volunteers in the field that work with VISTA members are able to nominate them as recognition for outstanding service. A winner is chosen every month. VISTA members are rewarded for outstanding service and receive a certificate and other recognition items.

Congratulations to the February VISTA of the Month!

Justin Ivey - Tempe, AZ

Justin recently relocated to Tempe, AZ after serving as a VISTA member in Hartford, CT. Throughout both of his terms, Justin has worked with passion to give students access to FIRST® LEGO® League programming. During his first term of service, he worked on a collaborative project that identified ways to make FIRST competitions more welcoming to students with disabilities. When he moved to Arizona, he hit the ground running at his new host site. He is currently planning a project to build team sustainability by expanding training opportunities for FIRST LEGO® League coaches. Justin has also gone out of his way to support his fellow VISTA members, especially newer members, when they are in need of assistance.
