hannaPlease join us in congratulating Hanna Otero for receiving the Above and Beyond Award for August. This monthly award is a great way for us to recognize and thank staff, students, volunteers, and the community who go above and beyond for the agency, helping to promote and raise needed funds for the program’s growth.

Hanna Otero is a teacher at The Genesis School.  Hanna is an irreplaceable member of the Genesis Family.  Hanna volunteers at all the Long Island Eden II and Genesis Foundation events.  Whenever Hanna volunteers at an event she goes beyond simply completing her assigned task and helps out whenever she sees the need for help.  Hanna’s infectious smile always ensures that event attendees feel welcomed and appreciated for their support.  Hanna also recently helped launch a food service program at The Genesis School.  Each week along with Genesis participants they plan, shop, and prepare a meal which is sold to Genesis staff, students, and participants.

We are so very fortunate to have Hanna Otero as a part of the Eden II family.  As a recipient of the Above and Beyond Award, Hanna Otero will be recognized on a permanent plaque on both Staten Island and Long Island.
