The SWBOCES Board of Education honored two employees Wednesday with the BOCES Ambassador Award, which recognizes employees who have served the educational organization with excellence and embody the spirit of BOCES collaboration. BOCES Chief Operating Officer and Deputy District Superintendent Sandra Simpson presented the honorees, Maureen McCarthy and Tracy Sadler, with certificates and read some of the nomination testimonials written about each by their colleagues.

The names of this year's honorees will be added to a plaque already etched with the names of two previous honorees, former Lower Hudson Regional Information Center Executive Director Jim O'Brien and Maria Morgan, former Director of the Center for Adult and Community Services.
Honoree Maureen McCarthy, who is retiring at the end of the school year, has been with the Lower Hudson Regional Information Center for 27 years, after spotting an advertisement for the job in The New York Times. She has held a number of different positions over the years, including Regional Coordinator, and supervisor in the LHRIC’s Financial Services, Student Services and other departments.
She credits the support she received from former LHRIC Directors Peter Reilly and Jim O’Brien for her longevity.
Ms. McCarthy and her husband, Denis, are part of “a huge Irish-American family” that consists of 38 nieces and nephews, and their son, Terence, who was just married last year and lives in Boston.
