Vashti wins Spirit of Ability Award

PERL co-director Vashti Sawtelle has won the Spirit of Ability Award. The award "commemorates the empowering heritage of founders who saw beyond disabilities. They opened higher education to people whose disabilities were commonly perceived to preclude excellence. Honorees are contemporary leaders who continue this MSU tradition of creating vibrant environments that welcome, fortify, and compassionately challenge each person to reach their fullest ability."

Vashti will be on honored at an awards ceremony on Friday, April 5th, 2019 at 1pm in Big 10A at the Kellogg Center. Congratulations, Vashti!
