Washington, D.C. - Shapiro, Lifschitz & Schram (SLS) is pleased to announce that it has received the 2015 Founder’s Award from Sulam, an educational institution in Rockville, Md. for students with learning differences. The award was presented at a gala dinner held on June 2 at the Bethesda North Marriott & Conference Center.
“We are so proud of the work that we have done with Sulam since its inception in 1998,” said Steven H. Schram, managing principal and co-president of the firm, and Sulam board member. “It is a core value of SLS to serve not only our clients but also the community within which we live. We have seen that value blossom with Sulam. The work that the school is doing literally changes children’s lives, and offers them a meaningful, nurturing education when one would otherwise not be available. We are honored to be receiving this year’s Founders Award.”
Sulam believes that a strong identity is built through inclusion of all children in the mainstream school experience.
