Community Nutrition Director for the Sheridan Senior Center, Carolyn Benepe, was honored by the Wyoming Dietetic Association as their Emerging Dietetic Leader for 2010. She was recently recognized at the association's annual conference in Casper, and Sheridan area dietitians presented Carolyn with a plaque acknowledging this award.
Benepe will also receive a certificate of recognition and congratulatory letter from the President of the American Dietetic Association, and her name will be published as an award winner in a fall issue of the Journal of American Dietetic Association.
Criteria for this award included demonstrating leadership in areas such as legislation, research, education or management in the Association, community or employment. The selection of the recipient is made by a vote of the Wyoming Dietetic Association members throughout the state.
