124Please join us in congratulating Suzanne Reek for being the recipient of the Above and Beyond Award for April. This monthly award is a great way for us to recognize and thank staff, students, and volunteers who go above and beyond for the agency, helping to promote and raise needed funds for the program’s growth.

Suzanne Reek is a Long Island parent, great volunteer, advocate, and supporter of Eden II and the Genesis School. Suzanne is very involved in Eden’s Long Island fundraising events. She has helped to secure the ‘finish line food’ for our Blazing Trails 4 Autism Run/Walk, which is held every Fall. Suzanne has helped Eden II apply for and get $5,000 grants for Eden II’s Genesis School technology supplies, as well as find volunteers from corporate organizations to volunteer and sponsor our events! When asked about Eden II, Sue shared, “The greatest part of Eden to me is the staff and their commitment to our children.”

Suzanne is President of the Nassau Suffolk Chapter of the Autism Society of America, and through this role helps Long Island families and organizations provide special opportunities for all individuals within the autism spectrum. She is also a retired NYPD sergeant who successfully completed 20 years.

Her dedication to Autism Awareness makes her a very worthy recipient of our April award.

We are so very fortunate to have Suzanne Reek as part of the Eden II/Genesis family.
