Y Staff Member Becky Cross Named City of Acworth Person of the Year 

Congratulations to the 2020 Acworth Business Association’s (ABA) Person of the Yearand Northwest Family Y staff member Becky Cross! Becky is a leader in the Y as well as in the Acworth community. At the Y, she is a leader in our hunger relief programs and works tirelessly to ensure we are able to provide as many meals as possible to individuals and families in our community. She has been a leader within the ABA as a board member for several years, but this year rose above the call of duty to help develop a youth feeding program for the association as well. 

Through this ABA hunger relief program, Becky has been a huge part of providing 141,000 meals to the community since March. For a family of 4, that would be a meal a day for 96 years! Not only was she making sure they had food, she was also making sure they had bike helmets, Easter candy, hygiene items, and moreWe are so proud of Becky and her dedication and passion for supporting the members of our community most in need. She truly embodies the Y’s character values – especially CARING!
