One of Rainbows’ Guiding Principles is to be positive, celebrate success and recognize achievements. Established in 2013, the Prism Award is given to recognize the achievements of an outstanding Rainbows staff member. Angela Pulaski, Butler County Infant/Toddler Services Bright Beginnings physical therapist, was the recipient of the 2014 award.
The Prism Award was so named because of the uniqueness and many facets of a prism. A prism reflects light and turns it into a Rainbow. It signifies creating masterpieces and enduring beauty. The prism is a reflection of Rainbows’ Guiding Principles. The Prism Award is given in appreciation of our staff who reflects quality and value in the work they do with children, families, each other and the community on behalf of Rainbows. Angela began working for Rainbows in 1997, but her desire to work with children with special needs began much sooner, inspired by a family member who had Down syndrome.
Angela is a shining example of Rainbows’ Guiding Principles and strives to provide the best possible services for children with special needs and their families. She uses the tools of knowledge, skill in her profession and experience to help Rainbows continuously improve the services provided to children with special needs. As the 2014 Prism Award winner, Angela’s name has been placed on a plaque displayed at Kids’ Point where other future winners’ names will be added each year. She also received a Krug art piece as well as a check for $1,000. Read more about Angela here.
