Pauls Story Image

YMCA Lynfield's very own Super Star!

If you're part of the YMCA Lynfield Family, you will have received a friendly "Hello" from Paul during one of your visits to our Centre.  

Paul is YMCA Lynfield's Centre Assistant and has been at the Centre for 16 years. He has earned himself a renowned reputation - there is no job he cannot do!  Paul's hard work, friendly nature and can-do attitude was widely recognized and rewarded by the YMCA Auckland, as he won the Annual "Star of the Year" award, going up against 700 staff members from 23 different Centres.

Star Awards are how the YMCA recognizes staff that goes above and beyond their call of duty and displays our core values in all they do. Our values are honesty, caring, respect and responsibility. Paul was greatly honored with the award during YMCA's AGM in October.
