 McLaughlin, Austin named

July Instructors of the Month 


Beckie Austin and Alicia McLaughlin were named the Arc of Steuben’s Instructors of the Month for July.

McLaughlin, central intake and transition coordinator, and Austin, senior program coordinator, were nominated because of an autism training session they recently gave.

“The way this training was presented captivated me for the full four hours,” Mary K. Beaver, who nominated Austin and McLaughlin for the award, said. “Not only was this training valuable and interesting, but the way these two instructors worked so in sync with each other was remarkable and kept the attention of the audience.”

Beaver said the training contained a lot of information that could have been overwhelming, but Austin and McLaughlin presented the class in a way that was interesting, well organized and informative.

Also nominated was Lesa Didas, residence coordinator for the West Street residence.
