Windham delegation recognizes Executive Director of Riding To The Top

Windham Delegation members, Senator Bill Diamond, and Representatives Mark Bryant and Patrick Corey, recognized Sarah Bronson, Executive Director of Riding to The Top (“RTT”) with a State proclamation at RTT’s Board of Directors meeting in July. Representative Mark Bryant read the proclamation which states:     
“Be it known to all that We, the Members of the Senate and the House of Representatives join in th Legislature and the people of the State of Maine”
Rep. Patrick Corey, Sen. Bill Diamond, Sarah Bronson,
 Rep. Mark Bryant
recognizing Sarah Bronson, of Windham, Executive Director of Riding To The Top Therapeutic Riding Center, who has received the 2019 Region1 PATH International Credentialed Professional of the Year Award for making the center a leader in providing equine-assisted activities and therapies to individuals with a wide range of physical, mental and behavioral challenges. We extend our congratulations and best wishes; And be it ordered that this official expression of sentiment be sent forthwith on behalf of the 129

The delegation thanked Sarah for all that she has done and continues to do and noted, “ We are very proud of Sarah and what she represents. We realize that her main goal is not to seek recognition for herself but to shine a light on Riding To The Top, equine assisted activities and therapies and the health and wellness of people in our community.” Gary Plummer, former State Representative and State Senator, and a current RTT Board member noted that this was a very rare and special recognition – and well deserved, “The first time I met Sarah it was very obvious to me that she was a “go-getter” and a very special person.”

In April, Sarah Bronson was awarded the 2019 Region 1 PATH Intl. Credentialed Professional of the Year, which automatically enters her to be considered for PATH Intl.’s larger international award where all regional and international winners compete. The winner will be announced at PATH Intl.’s Annual Conference in Denver, CO this November.
