Mike Munday '11 And Family Receive Award

Mike Munday ’11, his parents Michael and Rachel Witt, and Mike’s siblings were recently named the Lafayette, Indiana YMCA Volunteer Family of the Year. The Lafayette YMCA is a big operation, serving more than 5,000 people in the community.

Don Franklin, the director of the Lafayette YMCA, says volunteers are critical to their success. “The Witts are a model YMCA family,” Franklin said. “The children take swimming lessons, karate lessons and gymnastics. Their family helps at camp workdays, races and other YMCA special events.”

Michael, a proud father, noted that Mike’s efforts were a big part of their family winning the award.

This family speaks to our mission in action: “Educate young men to think critically, act responsibly, lead effectively, and live humanely.”
