Washington, CT - Devereux Glenholme’s 2008 Thomas F. Donovan Culture of Caring Award recipient is Ms. Leigh Cushing. Leigh is a vital member of the Devereux Glenholme School and her contributions to our culture during the past 18 months are immense. Leigh brings a positive attitude and energy with her that she applies in all aspects of her work; and in doing so motivates and inspires both students and staff to follow in her footsteps. Leigh’s dedication to the program and her creativity and implementation has, in the past year, led to a heightened awareness of both physical health and a promotion of a positive image among our students. Additionally, Leigh has encouraged healthy lifestyles among our population through a better understanding of foods and exercise. Currently, Leigh runs an extremely successful student program that follows these ideals and has had an incredibly high success rate of students meeting their personal health goals, be it weight loss, logging of meals to encourage a better understanding of caloric values or an improved sense of self-worth.

Leigh has added another dimension to the Devereux Glenholme equestrian program as well; her personal knowledge and experience with horses has led to the ability to manage an evening equestrian program and offer more learning opportunities to our students.

Beyond Leigh’s creative ideas, it is her passion and belief in excellence that tabs her as truly one of our best. Leigh’s personality, intelligence, creativity and devotion to Devereux Glenholme serve well as examples of excellence to others.

We are pleased to honor Ms. Leigh Cushing with the Thomas F. Donovan Culture of Caring Award.
