DO-IT Wins Award

Wednesday, August 1, 2001

DO-IT was presented with the outstanding program award from AHEAD (The Association on Higher Education and Disability). It was given to us in recognition of our efforts and success in helping people with disabilities succeed in postsecondary education and careers. Highlighted was our work in the area of promoting access to computers, the Internet and assistive technology as empowering tools. Sheryl Burgstahler, DO-IT Director, was the lucky one who accepted the award on behalf of the DO-IT staff, participants, and mentors. It was presented at AHEAD's annual conference in July which was, this year, in Portland, OR. AHEAD is an international, multi-cultural organization of professionals committed to full participation in higher education for persons with disabilities. It is the professional organization of directors and counselors who provide services to students with disabilities on postsecondary campuses.
