Volunteer Spotlight: Stephen McClure

Stephen McClure is one of the dedicated community volunteers who works behind the scenes to make Hands On Nashville Day happen.

Marketing manager at HealthStream, Stephen says of his first HON Day, “The spirit of enthusiasm and service was infectious.”

“[Hands On Nashville Day] was one of my first volunteering experiences in Nashville, and it really inspired me to get involved in the community,” Stephen remembers.

This Tullahoma, Tenn., native has served on the Hands On Nashville Day planning committee since 2006, when he focused on recruiting new team leaders for the event. This year, he’s reaching out to schools about whether they’re interested in having projects. “It’s great to talk to principals about how important HON Day is to their schools. I really get a sense that they appreciate the value of volunteer hours in improving their schools.”

Stephen and the rest of the 15-member HON Day planning committee are passionate about making Hands On Nashville Day a success, because they see it as more than just a service event.

“Hands On Nashville Day opens a door for many people,” Stephen says. “It helps them get in touch with the emotional value of volunteering, and especially shows just how easy HON makes it to get involved. When my friends and colleagues tell me that they’ve begun volunteering on their own as a result of their initial HON Day experience, I really feel like I have helped something important happen.”

Will Stephen have a team for Hands On Nashville Day this year? “Definitely. I’m combining my personal team with a group from HealthStream.”
