Bonnie Schmitz, 2020

Bonnie has been an instrumental leader for the Fond du Lac Family YMCA. Her dedication and leadership have been critical for our Y, specifically over the past year and a half, as we have faced challenging opportunities such as major flood damage, leadership changes, and now the global pandemic. Bonnie chairs our Finance Committee and has given visionary direction in each of those areas, to ensure the long-term stability of our Y. She is always willing to ask the tough questions to ensure that all avenues have been covered, and then graciously supports the collective decision. Bonnie gives so generously with her time and has become an important mentor to our leadership team at the Y. Bonnie is a true "cause-driven leader" and she embodies our YMCA's mission and values. We are grateful for all that Bonnie does for our Y. Thank you Bonnie!
