“We must use time creatively, in the knowledge that the time is always ripe to do right.”
These words were spoken by the great Martin Luther King Jr. Today, we celebrate MLK Day, commemorating all the glory and greatness he offered to the world. Since its founding in 1974, we have strived for community engagement and furthering education for the Muncie community. We will continue celebrating MLK’s everlasting message of justice and equity throughout the week. Below shines a light on our executive director, who spoke more about our vision and message.
The Ross Community Center Executive Director Jacqueline Hanoman was recently interviewed for Ball State’s WIPB “Wellness Matters” episode that aired on Saturday, January 16th. At the Ross Community Center, we are proud to be an organization that fosters the environment for the Web of Support to thrive. Our Executive Director is honored to be an Ambassador of the Web of Support in Muncie and at the core of our mission is to promote our community’s wellness. As she explains,
“Being an ambassador means being conscious of your responsibility as someone who intentionally wants to identify what threads there are in the web to intentionally weave that web and strengthen the web. My hope is that we have contributed to bringing some joy to people’s lives, the community’s spirit, and community wellness.”
Jacquie is one of the 50 adult ambassadors in Muncie. Our center is indeed, a place where we fulfill our mission and vision.
“Our mission is to build community by advancing education, lifelong learning, and wellness through our programs, services, and events.”
