On Friday, October 18, 2019, the Missouri Association of Counties with Developmental Disabilities Services (MACDDS) presented Lynn Smith, former executive director of Progressive Community Services, with a Lifetime Achievement Award at their annual conference.
Lynn’s journey with Progressive Community Services began in 1988. In 1998, she became the Executive Director. For over 20 years, she led PCS passionately, never afraid to take on any task that would provide a positive outcome for people with disabilities and their families.
With a laser focus vision of making Buchanan county a community where all are valued and embraced, Lynn has helped PCS grow and change through many different seasons. Through Lynn’s dedication to providing the best services and supports, our community has seen many positive changes toward employment, education and inclusion.
Lynn retired this summer and we can’t think of a better way to honor her legacy!
Everyone here at PCS would like to wish Lynn all the best in the next leg of her journey.
