This volunteer is special because: “Phillip joined the mentor program in 2007. He was matched with a youth at Maple Lane School in Centralia. Phillip has been an especially dedicated mentor. Phillip and his mentee have stayed in contact and are fast approaching their one-year anniversary as a match,” said Major W. Harris Jr., mentor program coordinator.
Volunteering is important to this volunteer because: “By being involved with this program, I hope I can offer something positive to help these kids with future lifestyle choices,” Wayt said.
Wayt will receive a plaque from the Volunteer Center and KGY Radio, courtesy of Deer Creek Awards, a division of Color Graphics.
