Awards & Recognition

June 2022: The Sally K. Lenhardt Professional Leadership Award from Lesley University was presented to Theresa Melito-Conners, PhD (Dr. MC), who earned her Ph.D. in Educational Leadership from Lesley’s Graduate School of Education in 2019. Melito-Conners’s dissertation on self-care and renewal practices for educators inspired her to launch her own business, Dr. MC’s Self-Care Cabaret, where she provides workshops and professional development for schools and organizations that focus on resilience, trauma recovery, self-care, developing a growth mindset, and more.
