Thea Kreinik, president of Reston Environmental Action (REACT) was chosen as an Excellence in Volunteerism winner by her employer, Northrop Grumman. Northrop Grumman recognizes employees who have demonstrated consistent dedication through volunteerism at local non-profit organizations. To honor her service, Northrop Grumman presented REACT with a check for $5,000.
Selected nominees demonstrated that they build sustainable and stronger communities and make a difference within their organization, Northrop Grumman said in a press release.
Kreinik is a founding member of REACT and has served as its president since its incorporation. She was one of a handful of residents who envisioned a strategy to answer a common concern among her friends, neighbors and co-workers. Kreinik worked with fellow residents to form an organization to engage residents in steps that make a real difference for the planet in their home, neighborhood and community.
Mary Brown, REACT’s Director, says Kreinik is dedicated to the mission and to producing results.
“When members suggest ideas, Thea is able to envision how the idea matches the mission and works to address the topic in a manner that aligns with our goals and objectives,” she said. “Her historical knowledge of the organization, and holistic, big-picture view keeping the organization on focus is invaluable to REACT.”
