Teen Volunteer Learns to Approach Every Problem with Compassion

Posted on: April 6, 2015

"Each time I walk in for my volunteer assignment, I'm not quite sure what will be waiting for me. However, this has taught me to approach every problem with a solution and compassion." – Elizabeth Molnar, Mercy T.A.G. Volunteer

Elizabeth “Lizzy” Molnar has been a part of the Teen T.A.G. (Together, Achieving Greatness) volunteer program since January 2013 and has given over 320 hours of service to Mercy Medical Center. She has spent most of her time volunteering at the Main Lobby Information desk assisting patients and guests of the hospital with way-finding. In addition to her regular assignment, she has also participated in several service projects, including wrapping presents to give to patients on Christmas Eve and painting faces at the “Carnival Crusin’ Around the World” children’s cultural diversity fair hosted at Mercy Health Center of North Canton on Whipple Avenue. Elizabeth was also selected to be a Teen T.A.G. leader during the 2014-2015 school year because she has demonstrated exemplary character in her volunteer service to Mercy Medical Center, including responsibility, kindness, and commitment.

“I am humbled to be volunteering at Mercy," she says. "Each time I walk in for my volunteer assignment, I'm not quite sure what will be waiting for me. However, this has taught me to approach every problem with a solution and compassion. I value leadership because it promotes an open-minded approach to ideas. With this, great ideas can be fostered, compromises can be made, and solutions can be found.”

A senior at GlenOak High School, Lizzy is a member of National Honor Society, Thespian Society, Science Olympiad, and Key Club. She has applied to several in-state universities and plans to study biochemistry.  She enjoys running, reading anything from Aldous Huxley to Zora Neale Hurston, and doing Sudoku puzzles.
