Delegation honors leader of Riding to the Top

Windham delegation members Sen. Bill Diamond and Reps. Mark Bryant and Patrick Corey recently recognized Riding to the Top executive director Sarah Bronson with a state proclamation on behalf of Maine’s 129th Legislature and the people of Maine at RTT’s July board of directors meeting.

In April, Bronson received the 2019 Region1 PATH International Credentialed Professional of the Year Award for making the center a leader in providing equine-assisted activities and therapies to individuals with a wide range of physical, mental and behavioral challenges. The distinction automatically enters her to be considered for PATH International’s global award. The winner will be announced at the annual  conference in Denver in November.
