Four Tufts Health Plan employees were honored by the YMCA for their outstanding performance in the workplace and dedication to their communities.
Maria-Cecilia Coloma, Kerri O’Connor, Pamela Mobley and Tanisha Nesmith have been selected as a YMCA Achievers for 2014. YMCA Achievers were recognized at an annual gala held at the Westin Copley in Boston on May 13.
“Tufts Health Plan extends our sincere congratulations to the 2014 Y Achievers who will complete a year of service mentoring and supporting young men and women as they strive to create greater opportunities for themselves,” said Lydia Greene, Tufts Health Plan’s vice president of human resources and diversity and member of the YMCA Achievers board of commissioners. “The YMCA Achiever program provides educational enrichment and career awareness activities for Greater Boston youth.
“Many of these youth are left to navigate the college process by themselves and these Tufts Health Plan employees, along with many others, will help to prepare these young men and women for college and a career. We are so very proud of their commitment to community service and to the youth of Greater Boston.”
Each sumer, Tufts Health Plan hosts a career day for participating youth, introducing them to a corporate environment and helps them build skills for future jobs. The event is now in its sixth year.
