In a statement, association officials said her desire to work with families in the child protection arena is unquenchable and her love of kids and their safety has been of the utmost importance.

Association officials said LePage readily shares her knowledge and passion with professionals in the field of child welfare and child protection.

“Janine deserves recognition for her tireless efforts to sweep down walls of resistance in creating a better, safer world for children in Crow Wing County and throughout Minnesota” concluded newly elected President Don Ryan.
