Ronald Lee is motivated to help people get back on their feet. Ron has been volunteering with IHS for almost four years now. What started off as donating and serving ice cream during mealtimes at IHS, turned into helping in the employment center.
As an entrepreneur whose professional background has included land developer, banker, and broker, he helps equip those who come to IHS for employment by teaching interviewing skills and practice interviews. “I share with them that being honest with others is the most important. Employers understand that we have all made mistakes or been in hard situations in the past, you just need to be transparent.”
When asked why he chooses to serve, “It’s what Christ would do,” Ronald said. His faith has been his driving force in his decision to volunteer over the years.
