For the City Times
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – Jill Kurszewski, board president for the Boys & Girls Club of the Wisconsin Rapids Area, was inducted into the Wisconsin Boys & Girls Club Hall of Fame at the Wisconsin Area Council annual meeting in Madison, Wisconsin on March 10.
Kurszewski was honored for her work as a key contributor in collaborating on a new facility with the South Wood County YMCA, opening in June in Wisconsin Rapids.
“I am truly humbled to be honored with this award,” said Kurszewski. “There are so many people doing amazing things for Boys & Girls Clubs across our state. I love the organization and don’t feel I am doing anything award-worthy. I’m just doing what I can to help. My parents modeled what a true community member does- we help others and try to make things better, especially in times of need. And I get to do this work with incredible club staff and my fellow dedicated board members.”
The Wisconsin Boys and Girls Club Hall of Fame is made up of volunteers and staff that have shared their “time, talents, and treasures with Boys & Girls Clubs across the state.” These individuals honored go above and beyond to ensure young people have the best possible experience each day they attend the Boys & Girls Club.
This year marks the second class of inductees into this prestigious group of Boys & Girls Club supporters.
Kurszewski has been involved with the Boys & Girls Club of the Wisconsin Rapids Area for eight years. She started as the club’s first full time resource development director and as her career progressed, rejoined the club as a board member in 2015.
Since then, Kurszewski has led the board of directors through the largest capital campaign the organization has experienced. Kurszewski has also contributed by planning and presenting at state and regional Boys & Girls Club conferences.
