The Arthur Lessac and Sue Ann Park Awards

The Arthur Lessac and Sue Ann Park Awards were created by Certified Trainer Robin Aronson and Master Teacher Crystal Robbins, respectively. These awards are given to students who are embodying and using the Lessac work above and beyond ordinary classroom participation. Any Lessac certified trainer or practitioner who is interested in giving this award at their institute may nominate. It is then up to the teacher/trainer to decide on the form of the award given.
