The inaugural Health First Stars of the Space Coast Awards, orchestrated by 2-1-1 Brevard and presented at Exploration Tower at Port Canaveral on May 2, 2015, recognized the “stellar” work of nonprofits in Brevard.
At the ceremony May, 1, 2015, winners, chosen by a panel of judges, included three organizations – one of them being Rolling Readers. Susan Thomas, Executive Director of the organization, received the All Pro Garage Doors Superstar Award, which recognizes an employee who has had significant impact on the nonprofit employer and the people it serves.
Libby Donoghue, executive director of 2-1-1 Brevard, said the event was created because it was important to honor the organizations and individuals that help 2-1-1 service its callers.
“I am extremely proud to be chosen for this award and represent the many volunteers that deliver our services to children across Brevard County everyday, “ said Susan Thomas. “We are honored to be among the other award winners who collectively serve the citizens in our community with passionate dedication.
