Barbra Sessa Award – Janet Anderson

The GAL Program celebrates Janet Anderson for winning this year’s Barbra Sessa Award. Janet’s passion for and connection with the children she represents makes her a stand-out in her circuit. If Janet is not in court or busily working away at her computer, she is on the phone with volunteers or talking to the children themselves to ensure their needs are met. GAL Volunteer Lori Mann said, “Whenever she sees one of my children, she shows them genuine interest and compassion by her words and actions. She leaves a lasting impression with the children. They all love her and know that she would do anything for them!” Janet approaches her cases armed with an extensive knowledge of the law, and as importantly, a holistic view to the case. Thank you Janet for embodying the Program’s mission, “I am for the Child!”
