Exceptional Employee

Congratulations to Brianna Szczebak, NISRA’s next Exceptional Employee! In 2015, Brianna started working with us because she has a "passion for helping others complete tasks they may struggle with" (check out this photo at our Learn to Ride a Bike program!). Brianna's favorite NISRA program and memory has been Track & Field, being part of watching & helping participants grow. She also enjoys visiting new places and hopes to travel to every continent. Thank you, Brianna, for being an exceptional staff member!
