Roth Staffing Companies is honored to recognize Amy Cox as its first Roth Hero of the Week for her work in Kenya and her ten-year commitment to support a young African student. Amy is the Search Manager in Phoenix, AZ, of Ledgent Search Group, the finance and accounting executive search business line of Roth Staffing Companies.
In celebration of Roth Staffing Companies’ 20th Anniversary, the organization is paying tribute to extraordinary people who are part of the Roth Staffing Family of Companies (Ultimate Staffing Services, Ledgent, Adams & Martin Group, and About Talent). For the next twenty weeks, selected Coworkers, Ambassadors or Customers are being recognized as one of Roth Heroes of the Week and each receive a $1,000 cash prize.
Amy Cox sponsors a young student named Alfred. He is able to go to school and receive a free lunch (sometimes his only meal of the day) because of the tuition Amy pays for every month; she has made a ten-year commitment to see him through school. Her monthly sponsorship also pays for his uniform, school supplies and medical care.
A little over a year ago, Amy traveled to Kenya with the “Food for the Hungry” program. She helped bring Alfred, and 100 other families, 20 kilos of grain, mosquito nets for the children 6-years-old and under, rain water receptacles, and deworming medications for the children.
Amy also impacted the local Kenyan business community. After learning that business owners found it difficult to trust each other, Amy coordinated micro-finance workshops and shared best practices to propose and implement solutions.
In recognition of the impact Amy made on an entire community and her commitment that continues to make life better for one special little boy, Amy Cox is this week’s recipient of the Roth Hero of the Week award.
