Arc honors partners and volunteers

The Arc of Greater Boone County recognized its partners and volunteers July 15 at its annual awards luncheon July 15 at Arc’s Lebanon office.

Executive Director Brent Cardin said Arc’s programs — Arc Artisans, Literacy Group, Job Club, Aktion Club and WIC Gardening group, as well as regular programs of workforce development in Job Connection and Mainstreet Enterprises, daily living skill training in PCS and the WIC program for women, infants and children — are “hitting on all cylinders.”

“Referrals were up, people were being served by us in the community and at our facilities in record numbers,” Cardin said. “The agency is alive and well.”

Cardin also recognized new student board of directors members Morgan Cornacchini and Allie Kirkman.

The Arc of Greater Boone County named Elise Ipock as Volunteer of the Year for her assistance with the literacy program at the Arc. Ipock spent more than 120 hours assisting with classes at the Arc since October 2012. Indy Reads: Boone County recommended Ipock for this position as part of the collaborative “Literacy is our Legacy” initiative made possible through grants from the Community Foundation of Boone County.

The Community Partner of the Year Award was presented to the Indiana High School Rodeo Association for its work and generosity on the Boone County Rodeo Bash event, and for including The Arc as its philanthropic partner for the past four years, and hopefully many more years to come.

Goodwill of Lebanon was named Business of the Year. Through The Arc’s Job Connection program, Goodwill has hired several employees, and both organizations share an interest in continuing and expanding the mutually beneficial relationship.

Program participants Becky Oaks, Stephanie Burdine, Jamie Lane, Bill Staton and Kathy Odom were recognized as Achievers of the Year in their programs, awards that were presented at Arc’s Thanksgiving Program Banquet in November.

Staff members Brenda Lesperance and Karol King were recognized for 10 and 20 years of service, and board members Bill Staton and Kenneth Cross were recognized for 20 and 30 years of service. Work Crew Supervisor and “Elisha of all trades,”Elisha Hedge, received special staff recognition for her versatility and dedication.
