MEMBER HIGHLIGHT

Theron Whiteneck has been a member of the Kirk Family YMCA since the beginning of 2016. He has an extensive background with Aquatics for the Scouts of America, and wanted to learn more about the teaching side of aquatics. Once he decided to make Roanoke his permanent home, he decided to get involved in the Kirk YMCA Splash Program. Y Splash teaches all Roanoke city and Roanoke county 2nd graders to be safe in and around the water. Theron has been a volunteer for this program since the Fall of 2017- he commits his time almost every week with a passion and desire to help these kids. We at the Kirk Family YMCA want to thank Theron for his commitment and hard work, Y Splash would not be the same without him!
