“Dinora volunteers with her husband and two children at the events sponsored by the Sparta Area Migrant Resource Council (SAMRC). The big annual event is the Farmworker Appreciation Day when we distribute backpacks, school supplies, and a grocery bag of food for the families. Dinora comes from a migrant family background. People who have lived that life know what the families need and Dinora understands how to connect with them in a way that no one else at NKC can. She’s a hard worker and never complains. You show her what needs to be done, and she does it.”

“Maddie is passionate, responsive to my questions, and has such a positive outlook. I appreciate her energy and enthusiasm. We laugh a lot when we’re together. She’s a really good problem solver and highly skilled. Maddie is the walking, talking personification of what NKC stands for.”
