The Second Annual NH Afterschool Professionals Celebration took place last June at the NH Audubon McLane Center in Concord, NH. Over 100 people joined together to recognize and celebrate the contributions of afterschool.
Susan Gimilaro of ACROSS NH and Jamie Calcagni of DHHS presented thirteen individuals with Afterschool Credentials in four categories: Afterschool Direct Service, Afterschool Administrator, Workshop Trainer, and Afterschool Master Professional.
Laconia Superintendent Brendan Minnihan and Nashua Assistant Superintendent Garth McKenney were recognized as Afterschool Champions. Lastly, the Thad Mandsager Award was presented to outstanding afterschool professional Pablo Hernandez of Nashua 21 CCLC by Conrad Mandsager.
