TAMPA, FL,Wednesday, October 26, 2016 – Meals On Wheels of Tampa elected a new board member, Nick Overby, this month.
Nick, Project Engineer for HDR, was appointed in October, for terms ending in 2019.
Nick joins the Meals On Wheels of Tampa Board of Directors with an established commitment and passion for giving back to the community. Growing up in Central Florida, he was actively involved in Seminole county’s Meals On Wheels, ETC. program as a volunteer alongside his family. His father, Brian Overby, was a long-time board member and former director, who helped make the building of a new kitchen and office facility a reality for Meals on Wheels, ETC. As a high school student at Lake Mary, Nick worked in the kitchen and as office support staff while earning his Bright Futures scholarship.
Nick graduated from Florida State University in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering. While at FSU, he was involved in a variety of philanthropic projects through his fraternity. He began his professional career with HDR, Tampa as a Project Engineer shortly after graduation. During his time with HDR, he has served two terms as the President for their Young Professionals Group. The focus of Young Professionals is to encourage professional career development, as well as, bettering the community through volunteerism. The HDR, Tampa Young Professionals group has been involved in many charitable activities including Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful, Hope Children’s Fund, St. Jude Children’s Hospital, Miles for Melanoma and Habitat for Humanity. As Nick begins to transition out of his leadership role in this capacity, he has recently been selected to serve on the corporate foundation board for HDR, headquartered in Omaha, NE. This three year commitment will allow Nick an opportunity to participate in global giving opportunities while serving to review and assist in selecting in which projects the corporate foundation will support. In addition to these commitments, he is working on his Master’s in Business Administration from the University of Tampa, with an expected graduation of spring 2018.
“We are very excited about Nick joining our Board at MOW! His passion and commitment to our mission, combined with his desire to serve and his many skills as a young professional, is a great addition to our mission as we continue to care for the homebound and seniors of Tampa!” said Steve King, Executive Director of Meals On Wheels of Tampa.
