Unsung Hero Award
At its annual Student Recognition Day event last month, staff and students of HowardCenter Jean Garvin School in Williston awarded the “Unsung Hero Award” to the Williston Police Department and the Williston Community Justice Board. According to Garvin School Director Lisa Bilowith via a news release, the award recognized the two community groups “for supporting our dreams, advocating for our students, creatively problem-solving challenges, and believing in our success.”
Steve LaTulippe, Director of the Community Justice Board, accepted the honor on behalf of both organizations.
“One of the clear objectives of the Williston Police Department and the Williston Community Justice Board is to take a compassionate and proactive stance when it comes to dealing with youth of the community. Our association with the Jean Garvin School’s administrative team, staff, and students allows us to fulfill that role as needed and when called upon by the school,” LaTulippe said in the release.
He credited Williston Police Sergeant Scott Graham as being instrumental in forming the relationship.
Bilowith added in the release: “We are proud to select both agencies because they worked in collaboration with us throughout the school year to be a presence, not only in times of crisis response, but also proactively and educationally. They made an effort to know several of our students, encouraged students to consider their actions in a different and more constructive light, and even brought a few students on ‘ride-alongs’ and to lunch.”
The HowardCenter Garvin School serves the therapeutic and academic needs of children aged 12 to 17 in Chittenden County.
