Champions for Children award for the North Country Region
Sean O'Brien, the Student Assistant Program coordinator at the Profile School has been awarded the Champions for Children award for the North Country Region by the New Hampshire School Administrators Association. Mr. O'Brien was presented the award at a ceremony held at the Grappone Conference Center in Concord on May 6, 2016. During the ceremony five regional winners were recognized as well as a state winner.
The New Hampshire School Administrators Association - a non-profit organization comprised of New Hampshire superintendents, assistant superintendents, special education directors, business officials, and other central office administrators - annually recognizes outstanding New Hampshire citizens as Champions for Children. This award program was established as a meaningful way to recognize New Hampshire citizens who have given distinguished voluntary public service to benefit children in our communities.
Mr. O'Brien was presented this prestigious award for his continued work to develop evidence based drug and alcohol education programs in North Country schools. He also works with students from all the schools in the North Country in the North Country Prevention Youth Council. This group has evolved into the Youth Leadership Through Adventure (YLTA) program. With Mr. O'Brien's guidance, the YLTA group, representing youth leaders from ten North Country high schools, convenes on a weekly basis to work on local and regional efforts for prevention of substance use among high school students.
