2023 Rosemary Zander Awards

    • Inspiring, tenacious, brave, intelligent, and unstoppable...just a few of the words used to describe the wonderful students who were nominated for the Rosemary Zander Award this year. Since 1988, students have been recognized for this award due to their accomplishments in academics, arts, athletics, communications, vocational training, employment, independent living skills, community service, and extracurricular activities. Our recipients are chosen by a panel of SSD judges who carefully review and score the many nominations submitted each year, pouring over the heartfelt and thoughtful words of SSD staff who clearly think the world of their students. While it makes the selection challenging, it is also a true testament to the special work of SSD.
