Statewide SASH (Support and Services at Home) Director Melissa Southwick and SASH Coordinator Syndi Zook have been named co-winners of the University of Vermont's “2021 Outstanding Service-Learning Community Partner Award, COVID edition.” They both took UVM students under their wings to provide them with exceptional real-world experience by mentoring them as they worked with SASH participants and older adults.
