Spotlight on Jenna DeYong!
Jenna is a doer. She is a lieutenant in the police department, wife, mother, runner, GOTR coach, and committed community member. Jenna is very passionate about the GOTR mission and ensuring that all girls in her community have access to the program. Jenna has coached at three different schools in the Granite City School District, she is re-starting the GOTR program at another school this fall, she recruits fellow community members to coach at the schools in the district, and she organizes the Granite City city-wide GOTR/H&S Practice 5k each season. This past spring season I was fortunate enough to attend the Practice 5k which included more than 90 girls from five schools in Granite City.
