Roswell's Jim Prichett Honored by YMCA of Metro Atlanta
Pritchett will receive the Volunteer of the Year award during a ceremony, Nov. 12.
Jim Pritchett of Roswell is receiving the YMCA of Metro Atlanta’s 2012 Volunteer of the Year award for his service at YMCA Camp High Harbour.
“Jim has a passion to promote the Y in any way he can,” says Ken O’Kelley, executive director of Camp High Harbour. “He utilizes his community connections to strengthen the board and promote projects for campers to enjoy. He makes our programs a success, and he truly is a stellar volunteer.”
Pritchett has been a board member ever since his children first attended YMCA Camp High Harbour on Lake Burton. He helped to develop the Y’s resident camp at Lake Allatoona, which expanded the number of young people who can participate in camp programs.
“The new camp at Lake Allatoona is a blessing,” says Pritchett. “A lot of work has gone into making it a great place for the kids, which is our priority. The Y places such importance on youth, and it makes my service that much more rewarding.”
The Y is a powerful association of men, women and children joined together by a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and connect.
Pritchett is director of operations at Balfour Beatty Construction and is treasurer of the Atlanta Auburn Building Science Committee. His work will be honored at the annual volunteer recognition dinner Monday, Nov. 12.
