Kelly Duszik, one of our Family Services Workers in Tyler, was named Caseworker of the Year at the Texas Region 5 Foster and Adoptive Family Training Conference. Her nominator wrote, “Kelly cares deeply for the children she works with and does the very best for them. She takes the time to get to know each child she works with and speaks with their caregivers to check on issues that need more attention. She is prompt, thorough, and willing to assist in any way she can.”
Kelly has been with LSS for four and a half years, and is a recipient of the quarterly STAR Award we present to acknowledge someone in our foster care department who has done an outstanding job. To quote one of “her” foster parents, “Kelly is always there when we need her, and she was a big help guiding us through all the paperwork. She takes the struggles and triumphs of her families to heart.”
LSS is very fortunate to have Kelly working for our children and families in East Texas. We are all so proud of her!
