Roehmholdt Honored With YMCA Award

Maria Roehmholdt of Jamestown was recently honored with the YMCA Employee of the Year Award at the Jamestown Area YMCA’s annual meeting. Presented by Mark Eckendorf, YMCA CEO and Jason Chinni, aquatics director, this award was created to honor one staff member who was previously voted Employee of the Month during the past 12 months.

Roehmholdt started at the YMCA as a swim instructor in 2006. Soon after, she became a certified lifeguard, lead swim lesson instructor, assistant aquatics director, Jets swim team coach, lifeguard training and CPR instructor and second-grade program assistant.

She was awarded Employee of the Month in May 2012.

“Maria is the glue that holds the aquatics department together,” said Chinni. “We all look good because I have a great assistant that works hard.”

She is married to David Roehmholdt and has five children: Ryan, Adriana, Matthew, Brennan and Joseph, who are YMCA members.
