During the annual Celebration of Service, Elena was honored by receiving the Carol Shima Award for her contributions in service. She made a special presentation about her work with the Ecoventure program in Sri Lanka- a program that she has been deeply involved for the past 2 years. She talked about the connection she made with the children and the understanding that one can build a genuine relationship despite perceived barriers of ethnicity, language, disability and education. She worked with the children's home in Sri Lanka and led the group that went this year.
