2020 ASN Honors Award Celebration

 

 

Typically, we hold an annual Honors Celebration to celebrate individuals and organizations who do a phenomenal job of creating and maintaining inclusion within our communities.  In 2020, we were not able to host an in-person event due to COVID, yet we still wanted to celebrate these wonderful people and organizations.

 

Take a look at the 2020 ASN Honors Award Recipients below!
