High School teacher and librarian, Mindy Walski wears multiple hats in our Montgomery Catholic community, but her biggest role is as Mom to her two children, Heather and Peter. At school, she teaches AP Computer Science and Honors Statistics, is the High School librarian, media specialist, Powerschool Administrator, leader of the Cyber Patriots team, and the coach of the new eSports team. While her days are filled with activities on campus, her evenings and weekends are even more eventful as she supports her children on their club soccer teams. She and her husband, Bill, were recently surprised to learn they had been selected as the 2021 US Youth Publix Parent Volunteer of the Year for the Alabama Soccer Association.
For the last 7 years, Mindy and Bill have served as volunteer managers for the Capital City Streaks /Alabama FC South 2007 Girls Team (2014-2021), as volunteer manager of the Capital City Streaks 2007 Boys Team (2018), and as volunteer registrars for the entire Capital City Streaks Organization for 2 years. In addition to volunteering in these capacities, they have also been instrumental in providing assistance to military families who are interested in the club’s soccer system, organized the annual Big House event for the team/families to help form long-term bonds, and have coached several soccer teams for off-season opportunities. They are always finding ways to be involved in the soccer community and are willing to help wherever needed.
“Mindy and Bill have excellent values including but not limited to inclusivity trying to ensure diversity in our team and they build strong relationships within and outside of the team and our club, encouraging a close team, showing incredible respect for the refereeing staff and everyone,” says fellow parent, Shawn Cole. “They are incredibly dependable. Their integrity and utmost respect for others is an amazing influence on our children and we could not be more blessed to have them as a constant source of encouragement and example of these qualities that matter so much not only to US Youth Soccer but to our families as well.”
