West Carroll Field Hockey Program Coordinator Wins Volunteer of the Year Award


UNION BRIDGE — November 1, 2018 — West Carroll Recreation Council (WCRC) announced the 2018 Volunteer of the Year Award as WCRC’s Field Hockey Program Coordinator Mellissa Lease. Ms. Lease was selected as a result of her leadership and continued dedication to the field hockey program.

Volunteer of the Year Awards Ceremony

In recognition of Lease’s time and hard work, she was presented with an award at the Carroll County Recreation and Parks, 2018 Volunteer of the Year Reception, on Thursday, November 1, 2018 at the Carroll Arts Center. Carroll County Recreation and Parks hosts this annual reception to honor recreation and park volunteers for their outstanding service.

Recognition Among Colleagues

Heather McKenzie, WCRC President talked of Lease’s accomplishments describing how Mellissa has been an active member of the council in various volunteer roles for approximately 10 years. She first joined the council as the head coach for field hockey when her daughter was starting out with the recreational sport. Now many seasons later, Mellissa is retiring from the council as the Field Hockey Coordinator as her daughter finishes her high school field hockey career. From coaching, to painting fields and running fundraisers for the program, Mellissa has been actively engaged supporting our community youth in our K-8 program, even when her daughter aged out. Balancing work/life priorities with volunteer endeavors is never an easy task. We are excited to bestow this honor on her today in recognition of her contributions as we celebrate the bittersweet moment of her retirement.




WCRC is a volunteer recreation council, sponsored by the Carroll County Recreation and Parks program and was established to meet the recreational needs of the county's citizens by providing a variety of affordable sports programs and recreational services.
