VISTA of the Quarter

The FIRST® VISTA program is proud to sponsor “VISTA of the Quarter”, 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. VISTA members are rewarded for outstanding service and receive a certificate and other recognition items.

Congratulations to our VISTAs of the Quarter!

Amber Wycklendt and Bridget Lee - Milwaukee, WI

Amber & Bridget have demonstrated success in compliance, attendance, meeting performance measures, supporting fellow VISTA members, and fully participating in program activities.

Both Amber & Bridget serve in Milwaukee, WI site. Since the start of their service in a year filled with uncertainties, they have remained positive, learned a lot, and always found ways to contribute to their site and the FIRST community overall leaving a lasting impact. Here is what their site supervisor Michael had to say:

“Amber and Bridget have been able to go above and beyond the call of duty. Even though their targeted school district has been shut down since before their service year, they were able to redefine what FIRST engagement looks like. They played a key part in starting a state wide FIRST Alumni Organization. This organization has connected high school students of all backgrounds as they begin the next chapter of their lives as FIRST Alumni.” - Michael Meilicke, Host Site Supervisor.

Congratulations to both Amber & Bridget! Thank you so much for your service!
