HERKIMER — Kevin Crosley, president and CEO of Arc Herkimer, was honored with the Outstanding Professional Achievement Award from the National Council of Executives (NCE) of The Arc of the United States.
He received the honor at the NCE awards luncheon at the annual national convention on Nov. 2 in San Diego, California.
The award recognizes NCE members who live by the “core values of The Arc by providing leadership resulting in outstanding achievement and a significant improvement in supports and services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families,” according to an Arc Herkimer news release.
“I am humbled and deeply honored to receive this award on behalf of the 700 people with disabilities and nearly 400 incredible staff at Arc Herkimer,” Crosley said in the release. “It is a true honor to be recognized by your peers in the industry and I couldn’t be more proud of the outstanding supports and services we provide for our families in Herkimer County. We have now placed Arc Herkimer on the national map and should be very proud of that accomplishment.”
NCE is a peer membership organization of leaders from The Arc’s network of nearly 700 chapters.
