CONGRATULATIONS TO:

MARY STORTINI AND

VICTORIA MORRISON,

RECIPIENTS OF CASHA’S 2014

DISTINGUISHED SERVICE AWARD

Each Year, CASHA’s Distinguished Service Award is presented to an individual who has made outstanding contributions to our field, to the communicatively impaired, and/or to related professional organizations. 

This year, CASHA has chosen to honor two Speech and Language Pathologists in the Capital Region.  The 2014 Distinguished Service Award is presented to Mary Stortini and Victoria Morrison.

Mary Stortini is the force behind the design and development of the Assistive Technology department at The Ballston Spa Central School District.  She evaluates, recommends, plans, and implements therapy and services for at least 50 students yearly, in order to provide them with innovative and cutting edge assistive and adaptive software.  She has provided numerous professional development offerings related to Assistive Technology and is a frequent presenter at local colleges.  Mary has been on the Executive Council of CASHA since 2007 and works as the Web Mistress, updating information often for members and visitors.

Victoria Morrison has made an equally significant impact in our field.  Currently, Victoria works as the EI and Preschool Coordinator and Autism Specialist at the Lexington Center Chapter of the NYARC.  Her work at The College of Saint Rose is vast and includes serving as the Coordinator of the EI and Preschool program, presenting on Aspergers Syndrome at The College’s Grand Rounds, and initiating a play-based intervention program for the preschool community. Victoria served as the CASHA President in 1999, has presented at CASHA Program Meetings, and serves on the Regional Advisory Board for the Center for Autism and Related Disorders at Suny Albany.  She is the Co-President of the Fulton-Montgomery Branch of the Autism Society of America, and a specialist in Austism Spectrum Disorders and social language.

Please join us in congratulating these two most deserving colleagues, Mary Stortini and Victoria Morrison, recipients of the 2014 Distinguished Service Award.  

 

Congratulations are in order for the 2014 CASHA Scholarship Recipients!


On May 16,2014, at the CASHA Spring Conference, Ms. Ashley Bucci and Mrs. Natalie Lorbecki were each awarded an $800.00 scholarship to use towards the completion of their masters program.  Both women stood out from the competition because of their dedication and enthusiasm for the field of Communication Sciences and Disorders.

Ms. Ashley Bucci is working towards the completion of her Doctoral degree in Audiology at the State University of New York in Buffalo with an expected graduation date of May 2018.  Mrs. Natalie Lorbecki is currently completing her Masters degree in Speech and Language Pathology at The College of Saint Rose with an expected completion date of May 2015.

Both recipients are extremely well deserving of this scholarship and we wish them the best of luck as they complete their programs.  Great work!
