Wawasee Schools in YMCA Corporate Challenge

The Wawasee School Corporation had 53 staff participate in the Kosciusko Community YMCA Corporate Challenge during the month of September. The Corporate Challenge is about building morale, developing team work, instilling company pride, promoting company recognition in the community, developing networking opportunities, and providing physical and mental conditioning for the staff. We had staff from all of our corporation schools and the Central Office participate in this challenge. Our staff participated in 22 events. Thirty-four Wawasee staff members participated in the 5K walk/run event! Our team got 5th out of the 7 teams for the Corporate Challenge.

We were also awarded the Spirit Award for the challenge. The Spirit Award criteria was:
  • Demonstrating teamwork at events
  • Level of representation of company employees at events
  • Designing a Tiki torch that represents your company and using this in opening ceremonies
  • Team mascot present at the opening ceremonies
  • Involvement of Superintendent in at least one event
  • Having matching t-shirts at all events
  • All members of a team having face painted for at least one event
"I was fortunate to meet and get to know staff in other buildings and develop a network of internal resources through this event. Thank you for the support for our school corporation to participate in this challenge!"
