Congratulations to Audrey Cunningham, our 2017 Member of the Year.
Audrey had the following to say about her award:
First, I would like to thank my family for their constant love and support. You are my mentors and the reason why I Stand for Children. Sixteen years ago, I left Brooklyn, NY to give my children a better education and place to live. Today I'm proud to say, I made the right decision.
Yesterday, I received the Member of the Year Award & was nominated as a team captain for the Springfield Empowerment team. I couldn't have done It without the best trainer and leaders; Amneris (Nedy), Allison, and Veronica. It is a privilege to be a part of a great organization and team.
Earlier this year while I was in Arizona at a Stand meeting, I met Jonah Edelman, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Stand for Children amongst other great team leaders from other states. If I had any doubt that this organization was for me, after one meeting I was more than convinced that I wanted to be a part of Stand for Children. I started as a parent advocate for the Springfield Empowerment team, and now I'm a team captain. This has always been my passion and it could be yours too.
Thank you, Stand for Children staff and members for allowing me to enhance my voice and I look forward to many more successful journeys with you all.
Stand for Children Massachusetts Team Captain and 2017 Member of the Year
