On Sept. 25, Teresa King, vice president and chief claims officer, received the 2018 Outstanding Volunteer award for her work at the New Directions Career Center. “[Teresa] was the unanimous choice to receive this award because of her generous commitment of time and energy,” Linda Warden, executive director of New Directions Career Center (NDCC), said.
King has served on the NDCC board of directors since March 2017. The NDCC has partnered with United Way’s Women’s Leadership Council to provide the E3 (educate, empower and elevate women) initiative, for which King has been an active volunteer. As a mentor for women in the program, she has been able to share professional, personal and life experiences with women in the program. “I have truly enjoyed my experience,” King said. “I have grown and learned as much from them as I hope I have given in return.”
On top of her volunteer work with E3, King has been an active supporter of NDCC’s Women of Promise event. By donating baskets and items and recruiting additional sponsors, she has positively impacted the success of the event. Next year, King will serve as co-chair of the Women of Promise Committee. In 2020, she will serve as chair for the 25th annual Women of Promise and the 40th anniversary of NDCC.
Teresa King’s work demonstrates our organization’s commitment to giving back to the communities where we live and work. Please join us in congratulating her on this accomplishment.
