Congratulations to the recipients of the Sara A. Green Scholarship! The scholarship was set up by the father of a longtime CRVI resident to benefit CRVI staff who are continuing their education in the field of Health and Human Services. The recipients for the Spring 2019 scholarship are Kiry Cruz and Jeanette Lafuente.
Kiry is an Administrative Assistant to CRVI's Chief Operating Officer. She has a thirst for knowledge and truly desires to make a difference in the lives of the people we support. She always represents our organization in a professional manner and her classes will have a direct effect on the work we are doing at CRVI. Kiry is currently pursuing her Bachelor's degree in Health Services at Lehman College.
Jeanette is a Direct Support Professional at Little Britain. She has a very strong work ethic and personal values. She is dedicated and self-motivated; she has a great passion for what she does and for the people who are supported by CRVI. Confident and well-organized, Jeanette is currently working towards her Nursing degree.
Congratulations to Kiry and Jeanette - both are well-deserving of this scholarship and all of us at CRVI wish them the best while finishing their studies.
