Melissa LeBaron, 2014 Legacy Award Recipient

Melissa LeBaron was named the Ritter-Severns Legacy Award recipient at Camp About Face on June 18, 2014. Melissa was recognized for her many years of volunteer service to Camp About Face.

The Ritter-Severns Legacy Award was established in 2010 by Camp About Face in honor of Carol Ritter and Trish Severns, co-founders of the camp. Carol and Trish are long-time members of the Riley at IU Health Cleft & Craniofacial Anomalies Team who worked to start a camp to supplement the excellent medical and surgical care provided to cleft and craniofacial patients at Riley Hospital.

Melissa is a camp alumnus who traveled from Wisconsin to attend Camp About Face as an adolescent. After graduating from camp, she continued to return each year as a volunteer counselor, traversing through three states each summer to provide a familiar face and loving support to the campers.

Melissa's award was presented by Steve Meneely, a camp volunteer and father of two former campers, who shared personal stories and reflections about Melissa and her dedication to Camp About Face. The Meneely family hosts Melissa's annual visits to Indiana from Wisconsin where Melissa works not only with people facing the challenge of living with a developmental disability, but also as a freelance journalist for a local newspaper.

Camp About Face is honored to have earned the respect and service of volunteers who share our passion for improving the lives of our craniofacial youth and who are dedicated to improving and promoting Camp About Face.
