Advocate of the Year Receives Award

Award Recipient Named

Society's Assets recognized Michelle LaBas-Bowen as the Dan Johnson Advocate of the Year for her work with the Burlington School District. She teaches her students the skills they will need to lead more independent lives as they reach adulthood. She encourages all of them to take a more active role in the educational process. She empowers her students to actively participate in the decision making that will impact their lives, routinely advocates on their behalf, and teaches them to advocate for themselbes. Congratulations, Michelle!
