We are pleased to announce that Gabe Herman, an Independent Living Counselor at Trinity Services, Inc. has received the 2015 Direct Support Professional Award from the Arc of Illinois
Gabe was nominated for recognition by his colleagues in Trinity Services Network 1. The Arc presents this award each year "to acknowledge an individual for their outstanding direct care service and supports to persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities." Only one person in Illinois with less than five years of service is named in this category.
His nomination letter, among other praise, mentions that "Gabe . . . puts the people he serves above his own needs to ensure they live full lives. He adapts to any situation making sure the people he serves are well taken care of."
Gabe is the son of veteran Independent Living Counselor Judy Kenny, who works in Network 3. He's pictured here during the award banquet in April with Yolanda McCullum, his Team Leader.
We congratulate Gabe on his well-deserved recognition.
