Soroptimist International Youth Recognition Night Honors AiN

It was a wonderful evening on April 17th where Autumn was able to attend the 44th Annual Youth Recognition Night put on by Soroptimist International of Diablo Vista.

Where two youths that volunteered at AiN were honored.
soroptismist caseyCasey Mitchell, who was AiN’s very own Girl Scout. Casey was awarded the Violet Richardson Ward Award. Violet Richardson Ward Award was named after the first president of the first Soroptimist club in 1921. The award honors girls who are making a difference through volunteer service. This award is given to a girl who makes the community and world a better place-such as working to end discrimination and poverty, assisting women and monitoring young girls.

Autumn Green also nominated Ariana Whitmarsh who has been part of AiN volunteer staff for the past year. She is gifted in working with children with special needs; furthermore, her gift shines when working as a 1:1 with a childsoroptismist group who needs additional support. She also has a take charge attitude; she doesn’t need to be directed on what needs to be done, but see a need and takes action. Ariana often times shows as much, if not more, responsibility than adult volunteers always telling the director when she has other plans and cannot work, or when she has messed up on her schedule putting the wrong dates down. She takes full responsibility for it and never makes excuses. Because of her honesty and integrity she will be very successful in life. Autumn believes that Ariana will be a fabulous speech and language therapist!

Autumn Green, founder of All in Need Family Support and All in Need, Family Support were awarded the June Harman- Frisbie Award. This award is presented annually at “Youth Recognition Night” to an individual or organization within our community who works closely with young people.

All in Need was given the Community Service Award from Contra Costa County, Congressional Recognition certificate, and California Legislature Assembly Certificate of Recognition.

Autumn was a little too teary eye to make her speech, but she tried.
