Posted

Melanie Caron-Vlasak, a social worker at Ashton Ranch Elementary School, 14898 W. Acoma Drive, has been recognized with a 2021 Lifetime Achievement in School Social Work award by the School Social Work Association of Arizona.

The honor recognizes her exemplary service to children and families and mentorship to other school social workers.

Ms. Caron-Vlasak was recently recognized for the award at the virtual SWAAZ conference March 5. She was also honored by the Dysart Unified School District Governing Board at its March 10 meeting.

The School Social Work Association of Arizona is a nonprofit, professional association founded in 1991.

Formed to promote communication, collaboration, and cooperation among school social workers in the state of Arizona, the association sponsors an annual conference that provides continuing education opportunities, mini-grants to fund projects undertaken by members, and publishes a bi-monthly newsletter.
