#GenerationG Youth Board


Reagan Frystak, President

Hello! My name is Reagan Frystak. I am 18 years old and a senior at DC Everest Senior High. When I graduate, I would like to attend the United States Coast Guard Academy (USCGA) and study government, or I would like to enlist in the United States Coast Guard as a Public Affairs Specialist. Some of my hobbies include swimming, running, reading, writing, and volunteering at GiGi's Playhouse! I joined GiGi's because I wanted to be involved with a growing non-profit in our area and make a difference. It's exciting to work with other participants and volunteers, and I admire the Playhouse's mission to spread a message of kindness & acceptance to all! I look forward to seeing the impacts GiGi's leaves on our community and how it brings everyone together!


Cassidy Lackey, Vice President

I am so happy and proud to be part of this excellent organization! I always love helping out in the community and Gigi’s is one of the organizations I'm most passionate about. I'm so excited to watch the playhouse and our Gigi’s family grow together!


Maddie Martin, Secretary

Hi! I live in Marathon City and I’m sophomore at Marathon High School. At school I enjoy playing on the volleyball team, being on FBLA, and participating in Math-league. I’m also part of my local Auxiliary where I am the 2020 Poppy Princess and got the chance to give speeches at Memorial and Veterans Day. I’m the oldest of four girls and have 3 animals. Two dogs, one is a puppy, and a cat we found as a stray. I joined Gigi’s to make a difference in my community and show other teens they can too!


Zoey Yang, Outreach

My name is Zoey Yang and I am a Freshman in the DC Everest School District. My interests include, volunteering for GiGi’s Playhouse, helping in the community with Peytons Promise, Girl Scouts, participating in swim team at my school, theater, dance, being with friends and family, and so much more. I am so happy to be a part of GiGi’s Playhouse Wausau and have a place for people to hang out and be accepted.


Esme’ Hoogendyk

I am 16-years-old and homeschooled junior in high school. In the fall of 2020 my little brother Remy was born and we found out that he has Down syndrome.  My main interests are anything craft related, baking, cooking, taking care of my chickens, signing, and playing violin. I love spending time with my family, especially playing games.  I have lived in Wausau, Wisconsin, for 5 years and have been attending St. Mary’s Oratory Catholic Church. I’m so excited to be part of GiGi’s Youth Board and I look forward to volunteering in the community. I would love to someday have a job that involves sign language and kids with special needs.


Geneva Michlig

Hi, my name is Geneva Michlig and I am a sophomore at Wausau East. I am on the swim and basketball teams, and I also enjoy reading and writing in my free time. I joined GiGi’s after hearing about its work in the community and I hope to help make a difference while getting to know other teens interested in this organization. I enjoy volunteering and I’m excited to be a part of GiGi's!
