New Data and Administrative Coordinator: Jarrod Hamerly

by School's Out Washington | | Posted under School's Out News


There’s a lot of work that goes into running an organization like School’s Out Washington. For example, when your YPQI coach goes to your program, someone needs to keep track of how many hours they’ve spent there. Or when you attend one of our workshops, someone needs to keep track that you actually attended.

With SOWA taking on a new Out of School Time Quality Initiative, we need someone to handle all of those administrative tasks. That’s why we hired experienced administrator Jarrod Hamerly to handle it! Let’s spend a moment getting to know this “man behind the curtain” who will make so much of our work possible!

Where are you from?

I was born in Wausau, Wisconsin and stayed in the area for most of my early life. After a short time spent in living in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan I moved to Seattle in early 2013, both to attend grad school and to escape the bitter winters of the Midwest.

What do you like to do in your own time?

I like to spend time outdoors when I can, usually hiking or fishing when the weather is nice. Otherwise I enjoy cooking and reading at home. I also spend a lot of time at local gaming shops and cafes playing card games and board games.

What brought you to SOWA?

Most of my childhood was spent in after school programs, and the clubs and activities that I was a part of had a big impact on my life. I had a great time and learned so much from them, and I made a lot of friends there that I still am close with today. I was really excited to bring my background in administration and database management to SOWA and help to bring some of those positive experiences that I had to other children.

Tell us one thing you are proud of.

I am proud of many things, but what comes to mind first is my persistence in obtaining my education. During my undergraduate studies I was a triple major while working over 40 hours a week, and I also worked full time while I pursued my Master’s Degree. I was able to learn time management skills as well as prepare myself for whatever challenges I would need to meet in the future.
