If you know Lizzy Badger, you know that “Above and Beyond” and her name go together like peanut butter and jelly. It’s an honor to recognize Lizzy as the Above and Beyond employee spotlight for this month. Lizzy is the program coordinator for the Roy City Recreation Department. Lizzy attended BYU and was quickly picked up by the recreation department when she graduated. Originally from Washington, Lizzy has grown a true love for Roy City and the community in general; you would think she was born and raised right here in Roy. Lizzy puts her heart and soul into her programs and truly goes above and beyond every single day. She finds great satisfaction in serving our community and providing fun opportunities such as sports, classes, and community events. She works very long days, nights, weekends, and holidays doing everything she can to assure that she and her staff are providing quality programs and activities. Most importantly, she wants to make sure as many people as possible have a smile on their faces. Lizzy’s personal motto is, “It’s a great day to be great.” She makes every day great in Roy City. Lizzy is always striving to come up with new ideas to improve and add to her programs, department, and Roy City as a whole. For any task that is given to her, she gives 110% and doesn’t stop until she has followed through with the task completely. Another motto of Lizzy’s is “I don’t do ugly.” She is a perfectionist and makes sure whatever she is working on is professional and always has that extra special Lizzy Badger shine. Roy City and the members of this community are very lucky to have such a dedicated and hardworking individual who prides herself in providing amazing opportunities for the youth as well as all members of this great community. The next time you see Lizzy at the ballpark, gym, or community event, let her know how much you appreciate her hard work!
