Living Resources, Inc. and the College Experience is once again impressed with the efforts of Alek Fisher who was recently selected to be a volunteer for the Stratton Veterans Affairs Medical Center located in downtown Albany.
Here he is posing with the Voluntary Service Specialist, Erwin “Dom” Dominguez after his interview on Monday, October 28, 2019. Dom is also a veteran of the Marine Corps and showed Alek some of his artifacts including a poster signed by a national hero from World War II.
Alek is going to be serving as a Transporter within the Stratton VA Medical Center at least one day a week for a few hours. His responsibilities will entail helping veterans who have mobility issues reach their various appointments throughout the facility.
On November 1, Alek also completed the Orientation that explained the expectations of a volunteer to honor the men and women who gave up much of themselves to protect our American liberties. He was hired for the Transporter volunteer position about two weeks after having been selected to participate as a greeter and membership card scanner at the Guilderland YMCA where he mans the front desk!
In addition to being an active volunteer in the community, Alek maintains a full-time position serving the Capital District YMCA in their After School Program at Menands Elementary School. We also appreciate all the support that comes from his mother, Lisa and his father, John in addition to the rest of his family who has assisted Alek with reaching his potential. Alek is a very personable individual as well as athletic especially when it comes to ice skating.
We wish Alek continuous success as he continues with the rest of his first year as an alumnus of the College Experience in the Transitions Program!
