Lexie Lednum earned the YMCA of Northwest North Carolina (NWNC) Strong Award for his dedication to volunteer work at the Davie Family YMCA in Mocksville.

Strong Award recipients are selected by personnel from one of 13 YMCA of NWNC branches, including YMCA Youth Development and YMCA Camp Hanes, for their service supporting the branch and its programs.

“Lednum has worked tirelessly to renovate the raised garden beds at the Davie Y,” said Luke Harris, Davie Y executive director. “He has spent hours pulling weeds, turning dirt and cultivating the soil to create the perfect atmosphere for growth during the late winter and early spring months. He has planted tomatoes and sweet potatoes to provide fresh produce for the Y’s summer camp families, members and staff.

“Our volunteers play a crucial role in the Y’s ability to provide transformative change to our communities as their efforts maximize our impact. We are so grateful for Lexie’s continual support of the Y and its investment in our community. His hard work, passion and green thumb has allowed the Y to further its mission of helping all people reach their God-given potential in spirit, mind and body in a fresh new way.”
