Fox 8 News Pays it Forward to LCCAA Board Member

posted 5/3/13 -- The support of dedicated volunteers, including Board Members, helps Lorain County Community Action make a difference every day. Long-time member Rhoda Lee was recognized this week through the Fox 8 News Pay it Forward Program.  The program, in partnership with The Word Church in Cleveland, recognizes unsung heroes nominated by the community.  Those honored receive a cash award.

Mrs. Lee was nominated by fellow board member, Andres Torres.

"Rhoda is an inspiration to me,"Torres said. "She is a very strong woman and I admire her for all the work she has down and continues to do for our community."

Mrs. Lee was surprised at her home by Torres, Fox 8’s Wayne Dawson and Pastor Vernon of The Word Church in Cleveland. "This is such a blessing!" she said. 

Mrs. Lee has been a member of the LCCAA Board for 10 years, with this year being her final year of service on the Board. She is a strong advocate of the Head Start program and volunteers her time helping to recruit children at community events.

Fox 8’s interview aired on Thursday, May 16 at 6:30 p.m.
