Farewell to Tracy

by Executive Director, Jody Rhodes

Ever Pic

Tracy Hrajnoha came to Neu-Life over 12 years ago as a Marquette Student interested in teaching Art to the Neu-Life youth.  She started as a volunteer and throughout her 12 years here, rose up through the ranks and held many positions that have contributed to all our successes.  As I reflect on those 12 years of Tracy’s contribution to Neu-Life, I hope you learn why she was so integral to our growth and success.
