A special thanks to Nate Bossingham:
We would like to commend Nate
Bossingham on his amazing job as the sports and aquatics director at
Our children have been actively involved with the YMCA sports
program for four years. Nate is very caring and sensitive to their
feelings. He is always paying careful attention, not only to our
children but all of the children around him. Our children look up to
him as a big brother.
Nate has always put forth the extra effort in all that he does.
He is able to motivate the young players while staying positive. We
truly appreciate that quality in the leaders of our youth.
[to top of second column in this letter]
When he is with the children that he is coaching or watching, he
helps them along, telling them what they need to know to help
themselves. He gives them the confidence to keep on going and trying
as hard as they can. He is very reliable and has brought so much to
the Lincoln YMCA. He not only treats the parents with respect, but
the children too. We all look up to him for what he does and will do
in the future. It takes a special person to work with the public and
an even more special person to work with children. He teaches them,
he encourages them, and he loves them. Every child and parent
involved with YMCA sports must feel for Nate the way we do.
We value what he has done and what he can and will do in the
Way to go, Nate. Keep up the good work!
