"Money Does Not Equal Success"

2018 Spirit Award Winner: Lorrie Woycik

The Spirit Awards celebrate passionate, courageous individuals who are dedicated to serving their communities and exhibiting what it means to Live United. With the help of The Times of Northwest Indiana, United Way of Porter County collected 27 incredible stories of volunteerism throughout the region!

A volunteer selection committee then chose eight extraordinary individuals for the 2018 Spirit Awards.

One winner was Lorrie Woycik of Valparaiso. Lorrie is a retired special-needs educator who has continued to follow her calling by coaching Special Olympic Athletes. Click here to read more about Lorrie's work.
