Beth Harris, recreation director for the Waco campus, received the Core Award for Hope.  Beth has a quiet inner strength and goes about her work with a smile on her face.  As our recreation director, Beth coordinates and facilitates our summer enrichment program, and has been instrumental in establishing our after school program which now includes the drum line, choir and theater arts.  She has a keen understanding of Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) and instills these skills in the staff she supervises as well as her work with our youth.

Charlsie Whitney, campus administrator had this to share about Beth, “She has a sweet spirit and a kind nurturing nature; but also has nerves of steel and is willing to do whatever it takes to make therapeutic recreation an integral part of our program.  She always demonstrates a professional demeanor and is caring, creative and encouraging.  These attribute guide her innate ability to offer hope to our youth through therapeutic interactions in all aspects of our recreation program. We are very fortunate to have Beth as part of our MCH team.”
