Lemus was nominated by the Ballistic United community for her tireless effort and time in the soccer club. She first became involved with Ballistic United in 2007 when her son, Joseph, then 5 years old, enrolled in the Kick Start program led by Tony Chavarria. In 2009, she became an Age Group Coordinator. In 2010, she took on the role as Academy Manager.
She first volunteered with Ballistic United because of Joseph's love of soccer. Lemus says about staying involved in the club: "I have become passionate about soccer and care about helping make BUSC the best soccer club in Northern California."
At the game, Lemus thanked the BUSC community for the nomination
"Once again, thank you for being such a great group of parents and club members to work with," she said. "I have made several lifelong friendships and cherish every one of them. BUSC is a part of our family and always will be for many years to come."
