Behind every United Way workplace campaign is a group of individuals that play a key role in making the campaign a success. Employee Campaign Coordinators not only provide a link between their organizations and United Way, they also plan, organize and coordinate the entire workplace campaign for their company.

The Employee Campaign Coordinator of the Year Award recognizes the time, effort and talent of individuals who are essential to helping United Way improve the lives of our community.

Nikki Jarrett, Thermo Fisher Scientific
