Shelly McSweeney, a Family Educator, has had an enormous impact during the past ten years she’s been with Lund Family Center.

“I feel that one of the most amazing things about Shelly is her positivity. She greets everyone with a welcoming smile, whether she is running into Glen Road to check her mail, or stopping by Hallam to pick up school supply bags. She always takes the time to say hello, and her joy in her work is contagious. Shelly is adaptable and flexible, able to adjust as needed. And still remains positive!” read Kim Coe, Director of Residential and Community Treatment, at the award presentation this morning.

Shelly is widely respected for her compassionate, unwavering commitment to the families she works with through the Children’s Treatment Program.

“Her dedication and love for this work shines and she doesn’t get discouraged by challenging situations or difficult times,” read Kim Coe.

“I still don’t think that I deserve it, but I’m thrilled to receive this award.  Its really so great to have my work in the community recognized and valued,” said Shelly after the award presentation.

Congratulations Jocelyn and Shelly!
