Fairmont, WV – Adam Benedum receives the NYAP Above & Beyond Award

Adam Benedum, Transportation Assistant in Fairmont, West Virginia, has been given the “Above & Beyond Award”.  Renee Ellenberger, WV Program Director, states,

I have given this award to Adam for always being there no matter what time of day, whether working or not to come in and transport no matter how far, no matter what time of day or night with a pleasant and positive attitude.  He transported a sibling group of four children who were never in foster care and he was able to calm them and help them understand what was happening.  He talked to them about where they were going and give them information about the foster family.  He is calm and gentle and helps the youth experiencing the trauma of entering foster care.


Congratulations for a job well done Adam!
