VSU Cum Laude
The honors keep rolling in for Village Shalom University. The annual week-long, intensive-learning environment that is taught and attended by Village Shalom residents, staff, volunteers and community members, recently received two top awards, adding to the kudos already reaped in 2012 from LeadingAge Kansas.
The Kansas Activity Directors Association (KADA) awarded its 2013 “Outstanding Activity Program of the Year” to VSU for elevating the quality of senior-adult programming by encouraging personal growth, social interaction and sustained involvement in lifelong learning.
VSU also captured the 2013 MOMBA “Best Resident Events” Award. MOMBA (Mature Online Marketing Business Achievement) awards recognize the most creative and original programs used by senior-living communities worldwide. The competition is sponsored by RetirementHomes.com, North America's largest online senior-living directory.
The awards will be presented in late October at the KADA 2013 Conference in Wichita and the LeadingAge annual meeting in Dallas, respectively.
