Each year we take time to honor those who truly make ASAP shine – our volunteers!
Our 2016 recipients are:
Barbara White Award – ASAP’s most prestigious award. It is given in recognition of outstanding contributions to further the efforts of our co-founder, Barbara White. Recipients demonstrate long-term commitment to the cause by being active in many areas of the organization. This year we are honored to give the award in memory of a lady who served as a support group leader, Board Director and parent of a child with these disorders. She was a true example of strength in gentility, courage in grace and lovingly loyal.
