Matthew Hill of Sheridan received the Starfish Thrower Award at a ceremony in Cheyenne this week. The Starfish Thrower Awards are given annually by the Wyoming Department of Health’s Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services Division. Wyoming Department of Health Director Dr. Brent Sherard said that Hill became a good example to other clients at the Life House at WYSTAR, as he demonstrated positive leadership qualities and the willingness to change his life for the better.
Hill remains highly involved in the 12-Step community, as he returns to WYSTAR monthly to conduct the 12-Step orientation group. The staff at the Life House of WYSTAR nominated Hill for the award.
