Rhonda Messamore, IC&RC President, presented the Presidential Leadership Award to outgoing Secretary Sandra Del Sesto, M.Ed., CPS, in recognition of outstanding contributions and support given to IC&RC and the substance abuse and prevention profession.
Messamore celebrated Del Sesto’s service: “Sandra has served for 15 years with IC&RC. She is active on the prevention committee and serves as its co-chair. From 2006 to 2010, she has been our Secretary, aiding in the transition of my new administration. On the Executive Committee, she has been an equal opportunist, keeping us aware of all perspectives. She always reminds us of the heart of our organization.”
Del Sesto remarked with gratitude: “Wow! I’m not usually without words. I am completely overwhelmed. To get this award from this group is one of the greatest honors in my entire life. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you all. I hope to be useful to this group and serve wherever I am needed.”
