Described as a “tongue-in-cheek awards show celebrating Tennessee’s best and worst political players and events of 2012,” the 6th Annual St. Crispin’s Day political awards celebration sent CASA home with a special treat:
Our Executive Director, Jane Andrews, holds a mighty sword presented to CASA for being an organization dedicated to “helping the underdog.” St. Crispin’s Day references a speech by Henry in Shakespeare’s Henry V encouraging his drastically outnumbered English troops to continue fighting the French.
The story of an underdog is one CASA knows well. It’s what we strive for each day. While we meet a child when the odds are not in his/her favor, with the support of our advocates and donors, we are able to help a child victim of abuse come out stronger and in a better situation than they started. A child feels empowered and transformed.
