Each year Jackson County United Way recruits campaign chairs and co-chairs to help succeed our campaign goal. Without the help of our chairs and co-chairs and all other community members, we would not be able to help our community in the capacity that we are able to. We would like to introduce our 2020-2021 Annual Campaign Chairs & Co-Chairs. This team is motivated and excited to help move Jackson County United Way's work in the community!
Campaign Chairs: John & Jamey Doriot
John & Jamey Doriot are this year's Annual Campaign Chairs. They have three children; Emma (10), Sophia (8), and Jack (3). John is the Director of Nutrition and Environmental Services at Schneck Medical Center and Jamey is a teacher for Seymour Middle School.
"We give to United Way because we believe in the work they do for our community and we see the direct impact of its programming. We chose the slogan for this year's campaign, We Live Here. We Give Here. It Stays Here. because we're proud to be a part of a community whose members consistently step up to help neighbors in need. All the money that is raised during the campaign goes to help people right here in Jackson County to fight for health, education, and financial stability. We hope you will join us this year in helping out our neighbors and those who need it most."
Campaign Co-Chairs: Curt & Summer Schleibaum
Curt & Summer Schleibaum are this year’s Annual Campaign Co Chairs. They have 8-year-old twins; Maddix and Madilyn who attend Cortland Elementary School and are very active in many youth athletic programs provided by the community. Curt & Summer are both Seymour Community School teachers. Summer teaches Mathematics at Seymour High School and Curt teaches Manufacturing at Seymour High School.
“We have supported the United Way through Seymour Community Schools for many years. We are very passionate about supporting organizations, such as Jackson County United Way, that make a good impact in our community. In our classrooms one of the top priorities that we believe in is building quality student relationships. We stress the importance to our students that stepping outside your comfort zone sometimes can really open up opportunities for them, and with those given opportunities you have to be mindful of giving back. Being in education we see the effects of poverty first hand in our classrooms. We like that the Jackson County United Way board and volunteers are working hard to develop a program for Jackson County families in need to pull themselves out of poverty. We are looking forward to helping United Way hands-on this year to fight for the health, education, and financial stability for families in Jackson County.”
