Debra Richard, a residential supervisor at Centerstone, was recently honored with The Arc of Illinois’ Direct Services Professional Award for her outstanding, dedicated, direct care service and support to persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Richard was selected as one of 10 finalists in early April.
Richard was officially awarded the Direct Support Professional Award during The Arc of Illinois’ 70th Annual Convention on Friday, June 12.
“Words cannot convey what it means to be nominated and to win the award,” Richard said in a news release from Centerstone.
Richard was nominated for the award by Amanda McClellan, Centerstone residential manager, and Angie Robison, Centerstone residential coordinator.
