On Wednesday, November 6, The Arc of Massachusetts hosted our first Fall Reception at the Carriage House at Gore Place.
The event featured members from our chapters across Massachusetts, members of our Board of Directors, and members of our Steering Committee. With a theme of recognition of individuals who specialize in family support in all its forms, awards were handed out to the following honorees:
- Sonja Stewart, Berkshire County Arc, in recognition of Leadership in Family and Individual Supports

- David T. Helm, PhD, ICI/UCEDD, in recognition of Leadership in Education and Collaboration

The evening also allowed The Arc of Massachusetts to have the special opportunity to recognize Judy Zacek, our Community Relations Manager who has been with The Arc since October 2003, for her Leadership in Advancing Statewide Advocacy.
