VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla., January 30, 2020 – On Jan. 22, the Volusia Association of School Administrators (VASA) presented AdventHealth with the 2020 VASA Jack Schoep Award during the annual Phi Delta Kappa and VASA Night at the LPGA Clubhouse in Daytona Beach.
Named in honor of a Volusia County Schools administrator who solved problems and cared about people, VASA presents the Jack Schoep Award annually to a person or organization that elevates public education through community service, leadership, and generous support.
In 2018, AdventHealth and the Volusia County School Board entered into a historic, first-of-its-kind partnership, establishing the AdventHealth Healthy Futures Program of Volusia County Schools.
As one of the nation’s largest faith-based healthcare systems, AdventHealth is the largest hospital system in Volusia County with facilities in Daytona Beach, DeLand, Orange City and New Smyrna Beach. AdventHealth’s involvement with the school district not only expands the care available to students and athletes, but also develops and enhances career opportunities. Through this program, AdventHealth strives to address three key issues impacting local schools: 1) career development in the healthcare industry; 2) student athlete health; and 3) chronic absenteeism.
“At AdventHealth, our mission extends beyond the walls of our hospitals and into the communities where we live, work and, in this case, learn,” said Anna Donaldson, AdventHealth director of sports marketing and strategic partnerships for Volusia and Flagler counties. “These students represent our future, and AdventHealth is committed to improving the health of the communities we serve at every stage of life, in every stage of health.”
