American Cancer Society’s Lincoln Ambassador Board Hits One-Year Mark
As a volunteer-led organization, the American Cancer Society (www.cancer.org) relies on the Lincoln Ambassador Board to assist in organizational effectiveness and continued growth through strategic direction, operational support, and volunteerism. The board recently completed their first year of a three-year term. Board members were all recruited by Randall Jantzen, senior manager of community development for the American Cancer Society.
The current members of the Lincoln Ambassador Board are as follows: Boyd Ober (chair), CEO of Leadership Resources; Steph Vanous (vice chair), director of HR consulting for Zelle Human Resource Solutions; Teri Clark (volunteer), owner of BigShots; Lacey Dalton, sales training solutions manager at Farm Credit Services of America; Michael Israel, MD, family practice physician at Bluestem Health; Rich Lloyd, president of Bryan College of Health Sciences; Brad Meyer, CEO of Bluestem Health; Bonnie Paschold (volunteer), substitute teacher for Norris Public Schools; Andrew Rinn, vice president of Ameritas; Micheal Q. Thompson, account manager at NRC Health; Tracy Warren, assistant dean for admissions at UNL – College of Law.
The American Cancer Society is thankful for the guidance and leadership these ambassadors exhibited in 2018. The organization would not be where it is at today without these outstanding individuals.
The American Cancer Society’s mission is to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer. With offices in Lincoln, Omaha, and Kearney, the American Cancer Society supports every community in Nebraska. While most people know about their research, the American Cancer Society also provides free lodging near treatment, a 24/7/365 live helpline, free rides to treatment, and advocacy groups to create awareness and impact.
