NOMINATE TODAY for the RUTH SAUNDERS DISTINGUISHED SERVICE AWARD
This honor was established as a way to show our great appreciation for the amazing dedication that Ruth Saunders showed throughout her career as interpreter, advocating for both the Deaf community and for the sign language interpreting profession. In this way, not only do we honor Ruth Saunders' immeasurable impact on our lives as interpreters, but we can shine the light on the amazing work that is still being done by your very own peers today.
2015 is the first year that nominations are open for this distinguished honor! It is our hope that interpreters across the commonwealth of Pennsylvania will consider their colleagues, mentors and heroes in the field and submit the names of those that rise to a level of excellent service. The winner of this award will be announced at the 2016 PARID annual meeting.
