Stormant Named YMCA Volunteer of the Year

December 13, 2013

Amy and Todd Stormant of Canton are receiving the YMCA of Metro Atlanta’s 2013 Volunteers of the Year award for their service at the G. Cecil Pruett Community Center/Cherokee Outdoor YMCAs. Their work was honored at the annual volunteer recognition dinner on Nov.4.

A registered and licensed dietician, Todd Stormant works in the Georgia Department of Public Health as a Women, Infants, and Children Nutrition Unit Manager. Amy Stormant is the owner of a photography and video company, AMAM Productions. Todd and Amy have two children.

“The Stormants are stellar volunteers and advocates of the Y through their soccer coaching and relationship building,” says John Hicks, executive director of the Pruett Family Y in Canton. “Amy and Todd championed the Striker Soccer Academy program. They worked with Y staff to merge into the existing and substantial academy program based out of the Northwest Y in Kennesaw. They have grown a committed soccer team, introduced a pre-academy program and continue to be strong advocates of the Y in our community.”

Todd Stormant says, “Volunteering with the sports program gives us a way to give back, and we’re deeply touched by the people we meet at the Y. Our oldest son has been assisting us with coaching since he was 9 years old: that's already four years of pitching in to help other families.”

“We really appreciate the Y’s annual giving campaign,” says Amy Stormant. “With financial assistance, kids learn sports and become amazing players who otherwise would have missed the opportunity due to finances. It keeps these kids out of trouble and allows them to develop into people who have a good work ethic and are willing to help others.”

When fourth year medical students begin choosing their elective rotations, exciting subjects come to mind: surgery, neurology, emergency medicine or even cardiology. But for one Georgia Regents University (GRU) Medical College of Georgia (MCG) student, public health sounded like an interesting and challenging rotation.
