Five years ago, Vance Sheer was diagnosed with stomach cancer. A great surgeon was able to save his life, and he remains cancer free. This type of surgery doesn’t come without complications. Vance understands from experience how health-related setbacks can lead to feelings of isolation. That’s why Vance is a fierce ambassador for volunteering. Volunteering helped keep him active and involved in the community instead of letting his health lead to isolation.
For the past 3 years, Vance has been an active leader amongst our volunteers. He is reliable, hardworking and goes the extra mile to support the mission of recruiting and engaging volunteers 55 and better. Vance’s experience in sales, management, and education made him a perfect candidate to become an inaugural Seniors in Service Ambassador. He uses his energy, enthusiasm, trademark smile, and humor to entice and endear prospective volunteers. Vance is an engagement and pitch master at Bingo and speaking engagements. He doesn’t sit behind a table and wait for folks to approach him. As people walk by you might hear, “Wow, those are nice boots! Where did you get them?” or “Can I tell you an amazing story about how one of our volunteers changed a life?” He’s so resourceful in gathering materials for tabling events, an Ambassador training program is even being created so he can help train 100 more like him! Are you like Vance, and love to share the value of volunteering with others?
