Why I’m a PKYPer

Hello! My name is Melinda Ferguson and I am a Physical Therapist at the University of Cincinnati Melinda Headshot 1Medical Center. I joined PKYP as a way to help out in our community. My mom is a ProKids CASA Volunteer and I know how important their work is to our local foster children.

Working with PKYP has given me the opportunity to support these wonderful volunteers, not only by fundraising, but also by raising awareness in the community of the need for ProKids. I hope this year to engage our members and other members of the Cincinnati YP community to make a difference in the lives of foster children. I hope that we will be able to provide 300 backpacks to allow these children to flourish at school and work towards their dreams.

If you are a Young Professional, looking to meet new people and network, you have come to the right place. If you are looking to add a leadership role to your resume, you should think about joining our Board! If you are looking to help your community in a way that will truly make a difference, look no further than here.

ProKids truly makes a difference in the community and we at PKYP strive to support them in this mission.

Melinda Ferguson, PKYP Board Chair
