Steve Scott named Arc of Steuben

Associate of the Month for June

The Arc of Steuben would like to congratulate Steve Scott for being named the Associate of the Month for June.

Steve is a support specialist at the Arc of Steuben’s Industrial Park complex. He was nominated because of the extra effort he puts into working with the people served by the Arc of Steuben.

“Steve is always the first one to volunteer to do extra tasks that come up without question,” his nomination
letter said. “He has gone out of his way to help people get fishing licenses, take people out for picnics and keep everyone happy and busy. He teaches classes and volunteers to pick up individuals for services.”

The letter pointed out an instance during the winter when the agency closed early due to inclement weather. Steve traveled out to the Pinney Road residence to provide services to one of the individuals living there.

Also nominated for the award were Martha Trenchard, Rosemary Bennett, Kristin Kashmer and Tammy Gelder.
