Connecting for Kids names Westlake business owners 'Professionals of the Year'

Sarah Rintamaki, Executive Director of Connecting for Kids (center), presents the 2022 Professionals of the Year Awards to Jeremy Meduri and Sara Rausch

Connecting for Kids has recognized Jeremy Meduri, Director of Clinical Services, and Sara Rausch, Director of Education, both of Insight Academy in Westlake with its 2022 Board Awards.

These awards are given to those that exemplify the mission of Connecting for Kids to provide education and support to families concerned about their child. 

During the pandemic, Meduri, a resident of Avon Lake, and Rausch, a resident of Westlake, saw an urgent need in the disabilities community with parents and caregivers having nowhere to turn. They watched schools closed and therapy center wait lists grow. They also watched families reach their breaking points.

In September 2020, Meduri and Rausch opened Insight Academy in Westlake. They welcomed all disabilities and grew so fast that they had to rent out the rest of their building. They saw the need and filled it at a record pace.

Their nomination written by a local parent states, “They have helped so many families in our community in such a short time, I cannot think of another duo more worthy of this award.”
