Northfield, NH –Spaulding Academy & Family Services (formerly Spaulding Youth Center) is pleased to announce the winners of its monthly Spaulding Spirit awards for the second quarter of 2021: John Fallon, Morgan Bailey, and Caroline Champagne. These peer-nominated awards recognize employees who embody the spirit of the organization and inspire fellow team members with their dedication.

John Fallon serves as a community-based clinician at Spaulding and has been with the organization for five years. He has extensive experience in family counseling and holds a master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from Bridgewater University, and is currently pursuing New Hampshire Master Licensed Drug and Alcohol Counselor (MLADAC) certification. As a member of the Individual Service Option (ISO) Foster Care Program team, John helps children make progress in their treatment plans, find success and permanency in foster care placements, and, when appropriate, manage transitions back home.

As a speech language pathologist, Morgan Bailey works one-on-one and in group settings with children on-campus, addressing feeding and swallowing issues, cognition and articulation challenges, social and pragmatic skills, and improving outcomes for children using assistive technology. Her clinical experience is with child and adult populations, and includes work completed at the University of Vermont Health Network, Burlington Health and Rehabilitation Center (Vermont), various Vermont elementary schools, and Krempel’s Center in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Morgan earned a master’s in Communication Sciences and Disorders at the University of Vermont in 2018 and joined Spaulding’s clinical team shortly afterward.

Caroline Champagne has served as one of Spaulding’s residential assistants for nearly two years. She assists the children in her residential cottage with managing their schedules and schoolwork, while instructing them in budgeting, household chores, and appropriate peer and adult communication. Caroline holds an associate degree in Criminal Justice from the New Hampshire Technical Institute and is currently pursuing a bachelor’s degree at Granite State College.

“With nearly 300 employees, Spaulding has countless special reasons to recognize our incredible staff members, who dedicate their talents to our children every day,” said Lys Miller-Drake, SHRM-SCP, Human Relations & Employee Engagement Director. “While we only honor one employee each month with a Spaulding Spirit Award, we feel it’s important to shine a light on the unique qualities of our team members in this way.”
