YMCA Volunteers of the Year from Fort Thomas


Ft. Thomas resident Denise Fenik was recently honored by the Campbell County YMCA as 2010 Volunteer of the Year for her passion toward the YMCA’s cause of strengthening the community.

Over the past few years, Fenik has been volunteering her time as a Hip Hop dance instructor at the Campbell County YMCA, providing members with high tempo cardio exercises that incorporate dance moves. Her classes are packed from wall-to-wall on Tuesday and Thursday nights and because of the growing success, she even began teaching a Youth Hip Hop Class. Her commitment to the Y, her enthusiasm for dance, and her belief that healthy habits can be achieved in fun and unique ways has helped many youth and adults achieve more active lifestyles- all while learning moves they can show their families and friends.

Ft. Thomas resident Jerry Ayers was recently honored as the Williams YMCA 2010 Volunteer of the Year for his passion about the YMCA’s cause of strengthening the community.

Although Ayers has been a Williams Branch Board member for several years, he has dedicated over 40 years of his life as our volunteer. Raising over $30,000 in just 2 years through the Williams YMCA Golf Outing, as well as consistently sharing the Y’s story, identifying opportunities to advance the Y’s priorities, and rallying adults to provide their support to the Y have enabled us to build and maintain long-lasting relationships in our community. Ayers’ philanthropic attitude is genuine, and he embodies the Y’s mission as someone who truly wants to help people build their spirit, mind, and body.
