Sarah Ingle has been honored as the recipient of The Crucible Award for 2007, sponsored by the Wisconsin Family Based Services Association.  The award was presented on April 26th in Madison at the WFBSA 20th anniversary conference.

As part of the Association’s mission to recognize and support individuals and systems that work to strengthen families in Wisconsin, The Crucible Award was developed to celebrate the skills and gifts of a member of the WFBSA professional family.  The award has a rich history within the traditions of WFBSA.  The first Crucible was awarded to Carl Whitaker in 1989 at the 2nd annual conference.  The award was specifically designed to recognize outstanding leadership and dedication to the family based services movement.  The title “Crucible” is from the book, The Family Crucible, by August Napier and Carl Whitaker.

Ms. Ingle’s long-standing support of and service to WFBSA, and her personal dedication to recovery-based work, serve as excellent examples of family based philosophy in action.  Additionally her energy and forward-thinking style exemplify the conference theme of Honoring our Roots-Branching out Toward Tomorrow.   The award placard reads, “Presented to Sarah Ingle in recognition of your outstanding service to the association and your dedicated promotion of the values and tenets of family based services.”  Ms. Ingle serves on the Board of Directors for WFBSA as a State-at-Large representative.  She has held a number of positions including Secretary and Membership Committee Chair.  Her work as conference co-chair and event coordinator has been pivotal to the success of the annual conference.
