A few years ago, it was my honor to nominate Colleen Sheahan for the Heritage University Violet Lumley Rau Alumni Award, which recognizes outstanding educators who continually strive to offer outstanding services to the children and families of the Yakima Valley. Colleen fully embodies this ideal. She continues to successfully collaborate with state and local partners to ensure that the needs of all students are met. Her commitment to serving parents, children, and families is unsurpassed.

Colleen Sheahan's dedication to sustaining a "neighborhood school" that serves children and parents from diverse economic and cultural backgrounds, multiple faith traditions, and varying educational needs is inspiring. She is a wonderful and informed educational partner. I am privileged to support her plan to bring her positively-framed education and community expertise forward!
