Volunteer of the Month — Walt Bailey

Volunteer of the Month: Walt Bailey

This month we honor Issaquah Highlands volunteer, Walt Bailey! Walt currently serves as Secretary of the Issaquah Highlands Community Association (IHCA) Board of Directors. He’s been on the board since July 2015. Before that Walt volunteered on the IHCA Finance Committee for two years. Walt also currently serves on the IHCA Architecture Review Committee (since August 2015).

We asked Walt to why he volunteers and how he feels about getting involved with the community in Issaquah Highlands:

“After serving in the US Army and traveling around the world, I feel very fortunate to have discovered Issaquah Highlands while it was still in its infancy.

Living here since August 1999, my wife Anne and I have witnessed tremendous positive growth – from concept to reality.  We appreciate the community layout, its parks and trails, and the diversity that adds to its vibrancy.

Volunteering at IHCA has allowed me to give back to my community and in turn, has provided me with an excellent learning experience –  what it really takes to operate one of the most desirable places to live in Washington.

“I’m honored to have been selected as volunteer of the month for IHCA.”
