Welcome Newest Rotarian Lizzie Mattox
Last week, Brad Bryan introduced our newest member Lizzie Mattox. Lizzie Mattox is Executive Director at City Impact. Raised in Lincoln, Lizzie attended the University of Nebraska Lincoln graduating in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science, International Studies, and History. She began at City Impact in 2011, leading the Youth Philanthropy Team and worked up to Youth Leadership Director, then Program Director, and finally Executive Director in 2017. In 2013, she became a Gallup Strengths Coach. A natural learner, Lizzie’s passion for strengths-based leadership development and experience with team building have proven to be great professional assets. Lizzie embodies grit and radical candor, working hard to create an environment of tenacity and trust for her team. Lizzie and her husband, Neal, live in central Lincoln near City Impact.
Thank you, Brad, for sponsoring Lizzie to Rotary. Welcome to Rotary, Lizzie!
