Easterseals UCP Multi-Systemic Therapy Staffer Recognized

Max is honored for her dedication

GREENVILLE, N.C., February 6, 2017


The Multi-Systemic Therapy Institute honors MST staffers for their work and dedication.  Recently, Maxine "Max" Sutton, an Easterseals UCP MST staffer, received the "Whatever It Takes Award."

Max went above and beyond to help others, ignoring her own needs at the time following Hurricane Matthew.  The hurricane had a devastating impact on parts of the east coast of the United States including North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia.  Many areas were left flooded leaving many communities with roads closed, homes and businesses damaged, and neighborhoods without power and water.  One of the people affected by the hurricane was Max.  Her neighborhood and community experienced major flooding leaving her displaced.  

While dealing with her personal crisis, she continued to assist MST families.  Max worked endless hours to help families get back on their feet again.

Due to her dedication and putting her MST families first, the Multisystemic Therapy Institute awarded her with the high honor of the "Whatever It Takes" Award.  Easterseals UCP is proud of Max.
