Yvonne Destout


Yvonne Destout
South Run RECenter's
2016 Outstanding Volunteer
of the Year

Yvonne Destout is one of South Run RECenter's outstanding volunteers. Her fantastic attitude, her tireless devotion to the needs of our customers, and her enthusiastic support of the Fairfax County Park Authority mission are all reasons she is a standout. One of the major reasons South Run RECenter has such a high customer retention rate and the best pass sale results of all the RECenters is the cleanliness of the facility and the friendliness of the staff. Yvonne Destout is a key player in both of those areas. She is committed to and exceptionally accomplished in keeping our fitness room spotless. Her untiring efforts, friendly demeanor and significant contributions to customer relations has made her an invaluable asset. Yvonne's greatest strengths are her attention to detail and her ownership of the entire facility. Where others take a quick swipe at a dirt spot, she gets under, around and between all pieces of the fitness equipment. The fitness center and equipment take a pounding, especially during winter months. However, with Yvonne's tireless efforts and expertise with a vacuum cleaner she has extended the life of our flooring and equipment as well as making it a nice and safe place to work out.

Her volunteer efforts at South Run go above and beyond the fitness room. Yvonne also cleans the windows and mirrors for which we are noted. It is her touch which brings in the light and sunshine that make our fitness room so nice to work out in. This volunteer leaves no stone unturned. When asked why she was cleaning tables at the far end of the RECenter, Yvonne stated "the lunch bunch sometimes leave dirty tables and that wasn't going to happen on my watch." She can also be spotted cleaning the entrance to the RECenter just because it makes a good first impression.

Yvonne's great attitude and friendliness has given many customers such a favorable impression of South Run that they have bought or renewed their memberships. Where many might consider cleaning a menial job, Yvonne says it gives her time to think and all the bending and reaching has really impressed her doctor and made her feel better.  For all her extra efforts to lend a helping hand wherever required makes Yvonne Destout truly deserving of South Run's Outstanding Volunteer of the Year award! Congratulation Yvonne!
