SCAN’s CASA Program Director Carrie Cannon was honored by the Family and Children’s Trust Fund of Virginia during Prevention Child Abuse Virginia’s annual conference in Richmond. The awards recognize individuals like Carrie whose prevention, intervention and treatment efforts in the area of child abuse and neglect have shown exceptional merit. Carrie was celebrated for her work recruiting, training and supporting nearly 80 advocates in the Alexandria/Arlington CASA Program as well as managing her own caseload. During Carrie’s tenure, she also expended the program beyond Alexandria to include Arlington, and led targeted recruitment efforts to add gender and ethnic diversity to the volunteer.
