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 VISTA of the Quarter!

Gabriella Guimaraes - New York City


Gabriella has demonstrated success in compliance, attendance, meeting performance measures, supporting fellow VISTA members, and fully participating in program activities.

Here is what her coworkers had to say:
“She is an extremely thoughtful, creative and extraordinary coworker who always goes above and beyond. One of the things I most admire about Gabriella is how she always wears her solutions-hat on. She's always up for the challenge and finds creative ways to tackle it head on. This attitude and mentality doesn't just stick to her current work, but extends to the challenges her peers face (even if she's not directly working on that project / program). Additionally, her creative spirit has elevated our social media experience to the next level - bringing new and unique designs to the forefront, and bringing our community closer together. I cannot celebrate Gabriella enough!"

Congratulations again Gabriella! Thank you so much for your service!
