2013 Trustees' Fund Awards Recipients Celebrated!


In December of 1993, the May Institute Board of Trustees created the Trustees’ Fund Award to recognize staff members from across the organization who exemplify May Institute’s ideals of service and professionalism. The members of the Board established a fund for the purpose of recognizing the outstanding performance of a dedicated group of individuals each year. 

This year, the Board received many nominations which were submitted by senior staff members from every program. Eight individuals were selected for this very special recognition.

May Institute’s Board of Trustees honors the recipients of the Trustees’ Fund Award for 2013 (pictured below along with President and CEO Dr. Lauren Solotar (bottom left) and Board of Trustees Chairman Dr. Don Ricciato (bottom right). Congratulations to each of you!

It takes more than patience, more than knowledge, more than good will, more than excellence of stamina, more than a sunny disposition, more than education. It takes a total and complete involvement with the child while you are with the child, it takes a special sensitivity to the needs of others, it takes an extraordinary kind of imagination, and it takes much love.”

May Institute Founders,
Dr. Jacques and Marie-Anne May
