CENG’s Misha Swanson Named Merit Award Winner, Receives $5,000 Grant for Back on My Feet One of 18 Volunteers Honored with Exelon Energy for the Community Volunteer Awards Business Wire BALTIMORE -- May 08, 2013 Misha Swanson, a CENG Commercial Project Manager who works in the Nuclear Fuels Department, has been honored by the Exelon Energy for the Community Volunteer Awards program. Swanson dedicated more than 150 hours during the past year to Back on My Feet (BoMF) and the Helping Up Mission (HUM) which have teamed up to help those experiencing homelessness to regain self-sufficiency in their lives. “I run with BoMF three times a week at 5:30 AM, but this goes a lot further for me than showing up for runs. I have the unique privilege to serve directly in my neighborhood, because HUM is about 500 feet from my apartment in downtown Baltimore,” said Swanson. “I have spent countless hours with my teammates over meals, at the movies or farmers market, introducing them to my other favorite exercise, Bikram yoga, celebrating their sobriety, and listening to their stories.” BoMF is anational for-purpose 501(c)3 organizationthat uses running to help those experiencing homelessness change the way they see themselves so they can make real change in their lives that results in employment and independent living.The program’s success is measured by how many Members achieve independence through employment and housing. BoMF started in Philadelphia in 2007 and now has 10 chapters nationwide. 46 percent of Residential Members (those experiencing homelessness) move their lives forward with a job, housing or both. The 2013 honorees were chosen by an external selection committee comprised of leaders from the nonprofit community. Additionally, these employees will be recognized by the American Institute for Public Service Jefferson Awards for their community service.Exelon’s Energy for the Community Employee Volunteer Awards were open to all eligible employees who volunteered at least 50 volunteer hours in 2012.
