Inspiration Walk

Volunteers Honored at Inspiration Walk

This year’s 2015 Volunteer of the Year has been a strong presence in our organization for over 20 years. He was part of the “founding ” group that built the organization we have today . Allan Waschak has been part of the Executive management Team since 1999 and has served as both the Fundraising Chair and Aquatics Coordinator, building the aquatics program from 11 athletes in 1995 to over 115 today. Many thanks and congratulations to Allan.

SOHO selected the Wrathall Family as our 2015 Family of the Year. Clyde and Barb Wrathall and their children have been part of our organization for over 23 years. Clyde was one of the “founding” group of our organization and served as a coach in multiple sports over the years as well as the Softball Coordinator. Their sons contributed time to developing athletes. Barb took on technical tasks, like generating our early newsletters and more recently, assisting in the administration of athlete registrations. Clyde recently “retired” as Softball Coordinator but has joined the bocce team as a Unified Partner. Congratulations to the Wrathalls and we thank you for your continued support.

A volunteer with our program for over 17 years, Jack Burk was selected as the Coach of the Year. He built our 3×3 basketball program bringing in many of his friends to serve as coaches and volunteers. His coaching style is encouraging and supportive and he is beloved by his athletes. He has grown our basketball program into one of the largest in the state with 19 teams and over 150 athletes. In addition, he and his family annually award an outstanding student volunteer through the Jackie Burk Memorial Scholarship. Congratulations, Coach Jack!

Also recognized at the Walk were some retiring sports coordinators: Sandy Schoenbrodt and Sheila Dwyer (bowling), Karen Thiem (bocce), and Clyde Wrathall (softball.)
