2016 “High Five” award recipient Katie Michaelson (not pictured)
Congratulations to this year’s “High Five” award recipients.
Listed in alphabetical order: Katie Michaelson, Nancy Sturlaugson, Karin Schooley (not pictured), Charity Rogers, Rebecca Thomas, and Jessica Williams. Five of the six award recipients were announced and presented a certificate at the last Metro Family Picnic on August 4, 2016. The MNH&V “High Five” award recipients were all nominated with submissions of 200 words or less by parents or care providers of children who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH). The submissions were then reviewed by the MNH&V staff and selected by the MNH&V Advisory Board.
The MNH&V community would like to thank all the award winners for their dedicated service. The “High Five” award was created as a way for parents to publicly recognize individuals who have gone above and beyond on behalf of children who are DHH. Past recipients represent a diverse group of parents, teachers, students, interpreters, providers, advocates, volunteers, and role models.
