Recently, IAHD (The Institute for Applied Human Dynamics) hosted their annual award dinner. This year was a very special year for SDC, as our late Executive Director, Terry O’Neill was chosen to receive their Lifetime Achievement Award. Sadly, Terry O’Neill passed away just a few short weeks prior to accepting his award, however, his family was grateful for the honor to accept the award for him. Mr. O’Neill’s long time best friend, Ray Allen, gave a speech in his honor. We are honored and proud to have been founded by such a profoundly influential person as Terry O’Neill. While his loss is great for our agency, we are following in his footsteps by continuing his dreams. Every day, his philosophy and caring approach to working with individuals with developmental disabilities is honored, respected, and practiced at SDC.
