Paul Herfindahl is an activity specialist with Rise’s Adult Day Program at the Northtown YMCA in Coon Rapids. Word from the team at the Y is that Paul is an overall outstanding co-worker. Nominators say that Paul, who started at Rise in 1994, is dedicated to those whom he supports. He is always looking to make that day the best day, starting with always greeting each person as they arrive on the vans.
Co-workers also tell us that Paul seems to know just what to do to resolve any situation that may arise. He is so positive with both his Rise team members as well as those whom he supports.
Paul says, “I like the people we serve and my co-workers. Rise gives me the social part of my life since I’m not a real talkative guy.” In his free time, Paul enjoys Vikings football, fishing, and the mountains.
