The Learning Center for the Deaf is pleased to honor three staff members each year for their exemplary service to the organization. The Annual Merit Awards, established in 2013, use the "Three C's" -- Competence, Character, and Community -- from The Learning Center for the Deaf's mission statement to guide the selection process.
The Merit Awards recognize individuals, nominated by their peers, who stand out in one of the three categories: 1) Those who have demonstrated exceptional Competence in their field, 2) those who have served as model of exemplary Character, 3) and those who have provided exemplary service to the TLC Community.
The 2013-2014 Merit Award Winners are:
Competence: Toni Ammirati, Elementary Principal
Character: Ivelisse "Ivy" Velez, Wraparound Intensive Care Coordinator
Community: Lena Dumont, TLC Interpreter
Thank you Toni, Ivy and Lena for your dedication and committment to TLC's vision!
