“I took over that role in January 2020, and pretty quickly the things I thought I was going to do changed,” he said. One of the main goals was to recruit and hire a new director, a search that ended with Lisa Aman joining the staff in April.
Spencer’s dedication to the Kate’s Club cause was recently recognized by his employer, Northwestern Mutual. Each year, the company’s foundation selects 16 recipients who have demonstrated exceptional volunteer service for its Community Service Awards. As part of the honor, winners receive a grant for the nonprofit they support. Spencer’s commitment earned a $15,000 donation to Kate’s Club.
“I was excited, happy and honored to receive the award on behalf of Kate’s Club and to have Northwestern Mutual cut a check for $15,000 that will support our programs and camps this year,” he said.
Information about Kate’s Club is online at katesclub.org.
