Congratulations to…

Jennifer Carpenter, Wayne Parker Advocate of the Year Award winner – “I was shocked at first, to be honest. I was very honored by receiving it. I will say that I am proud that somebody thought enough to recommend me for the STEP Wayne Parker Advocate Award and then to be chosen for it. This award is a pretty big deal and I take pride in helping our families with disabilities and being able to make that pathway a little bit easier for them as their children transition to life after high school.

Eric Massey, Wesley Rice Youth Advocate of the Year Award winner, – “The award means it’s important for me to teach others about inclusion and inclusive health and I want to keep doing it!”
