This month, we are saying goodbye and good luck to Helen Dauka, our Communications and Volunteer Project Manager, as she will be moving on to The University of Akron’s Office of Admissions as an Admissions Counselor.
Helen says this about her transition and time at Keep Akron Beautiful, “I have always benefited from having a strong support system of mentors both at school and professionally. I am excited to be able to provide that same support that I so greatly benefitted from! I will always carry with me the pride of knowing I helped make a difference during my time with Keep Akron Beautiful. I am so proud of the work done by our volunteers! While I will miss my KAB family, I am excited to transition into a volunteer role with the agency.”
Helen’s work in the Office of Admissions will have a focus on transfer students, which holds a personal connection for Helen. As an Akron alumna, she is herself a transfer student and will be able to relate firsthand to students. We will miss Helen very much, but we are excited to see what she will do in her new opportunity!
