We are proud to announce that OregonASK's own Katie Lakey has been selected as one of the
National AfterSchoolAssociation (NAA)
2018 Next Generation of Afterschool honorees. The recipients of this honor are emerging young leaders who are afterschool champions and believers in the power of afterschool. They are active in the community and have the potential to provide broad and long-term impact.
Katie is our Data & Grants Coordinator, and she sees her job this way:
My job is to help tell the story of afterschool: the triumphs of afterschool programs and the students they serve, but also the stories of the students still waiting for an opportunity. Through telling these stories I hope to help build strategies and systems that create opportunity for every child not just in Oregon but across the country.
