Marc D’Amore
2017 Trustees' Fund Award Recipient

Director of Education May Center School for Autism and Developmental Disabilities
West Springfield, Mass.

Marc has been an excellent, outstanding, stellar staff member since the day he was hired 12 years ago. I have had the pleasure of working alongside him during his time here at May Institute, and there is no disputing that he is a loyal, dedicated staff member who leads by example in every action he engages in.

When Marc started at our school, we only had 24 students. With his help and guidance, we have been able to successfully increase our school census by almost 50 percent, move the school to a brand new location, and improve and maintain our service delivery, to name a few of our accomplishments with his support.

He continually challenges himself, our staff, and students to ensure optimal progress is being made and obtained by all. I have never seen him falter when faced with a challenge, which is undeniably a leadership quality that doesn’t come naturally to everyone.

Marc has been an extremely dependable employee who has made my job as an Executive Director much easier and my appreciation for having him as my co-pilot over the last five years may never be fully understood because I have found articulating it into words to be nearly impossible. There is no one person more deserving of recognition for all of his hard work and contributions to May Institute than Marc D’Amore.
