McGee Receives Excellence in Mentoring Award

February 3, 2017

Rep. McGee was honored at the National Mentoring Summit in Washington D.C. and was awarded the 2017 Excellence in Mentoring Award by the National Mentoring Partnership (MENTOR), a national organization devoted to youth mentoring programs.                            

Mentorship is a great compliment to my work in the legislature. As a state representative, I try to expand the opportunities available to the next generation through legislation. However it’s not enough for opportunity to simply exist – young people need mentors to awaken them to their own potential. Mentoring young people is an incredibly rewarding experience and I will my continue my work with Ascend Mentoring, a Windsor-based organization that offers a mentoring program for at-risk youths, and The BSL Educational Foundation, which focuses on providing youth development programs.
