Ron, wow, what a great person. Growing up in the Young Men's Christian Association, I had someone to look up to always. Becoming a volunteer of the YMCA, I had someone to look up to always. Becoming an employee of the YMCA, I still had someone to look up to - Ron. Growing into a man who makes decisions everyday would be so much more difficult without the guidance of Ron. I am still an employee of the YMCA and my hero is still my boss. Ron is the image beside the definition of "hero" in the dictionary. But the best thing about him is that he isn't only my hero, he is every child's hero who now realizes that they can become something better.
