The year 2022 marked twenty years of operation for Alternative Paths Training School! On October 29th 2022, APTS hosted its first ever gala in celebration of its twentieth anniversary. Many of the people, from both past and present, who have worked to get APTS to where it is today gathered to celebrate the monumental milestone!
Over the past 20 years, APTS has achieved so much due to the help of dedicated staff. With this award, we are honoring several individuals, nominated by their peers, based on their quality of work, innovative ideas, and dedication to the mission and vision of APTS. These staff members demonstrate true excellence on the job.
Spotlight Award Winner: Jennifer Benzel
Jen was repeatedly recognized by her peers for “bringing all the campuses together,” and “spending countless hours researching policies and procedures” for the benefit of APTS. She was commended for always “running around laughing making people feel calm,” and for “always thinking about what is best for our students and staff.” Thank you Nurse Jen for all you’ve done for APTS.
