VSS wishes to congratulate Leslie McPherson, Director of Hotline & Volunteer Services for being voted in again as this month’s Employee of the Month. Last month, you had the opportunity to read about Leslie’s extensive history with VSS, as well as her quick progression from a volunteer to a Program Director at the agency. One of Leslie’s passions here at VSS is fund development, as she co-chairs the Fund Development Committee and is deeply involved in planning the agency’s big fundraising events. Just recently, we hosted our annual Voices of Victims Luncheon at the Angel of the Winds Arena. We had an amazing turnout – over 320 attendees, and the agency raised over $36,000.00, ensuring that we can continue to provide free services to victims of crime throughout Washington state! Leslie was the person who spear-headed this event, planning out its details and pouring her heart and soul into the details of this event (and others throughout the year!) We commend Leslie on her consistent efforts and dedication to VSS and to advancing its mission. Kudos to Leslie for having a multitude of talents that she so willingly shares with us!
