P.A.A.R.I. Executive Director Receives Young Professional Award from Massachusetts Nonprofit Network

During a ceremony at the State House on Monday, June 5, the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network honored Executive Director Allie Hunter McDade with a Young Professional Award. The event coincided with MNN’s annual Nonprofit Awareness Day.

Each year, the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network honors the passion and impact of leaders in the state’s nonprofit sector with the Nonprofit Excellence Awards. Recipients exemplify the most innovative, creative and effective work being done throughout the Commonwealth.

The Young Professional Excellence Award recognizes an emerging nonprofit professional who has made a significant contribution to his or her organization through their effectiveness, dedication, perseverance, innovative thinking and interpersonal skills.

“It was an honor to receive the award and have the opportunity to highlight P.A.A.R.I.’s work,” Hunter McDade said.
