Shawn Robinson, director of vocational services at ServiceNet, was recognized as the Daily Hampshire Gazette’s Person of the Year on Friday, June 9.  

Robinson was recognized for his professional role, along with his involvement in myriad regional organizations and town committees in Hatfield, where he lives. He was presented the recognition during the United Way of Franklin and Hampshire Region’s awards celebration at Look Park. 

“ServiceNet has given me an opportunity of a lifetime allowing me to use innovative programming to dramatically improve the lives of people with disabilities and I am forever grateful for that,” Robinson said at the event. “True happiness comes from knowing you made a positive difference in someone else’s life.” 

Earlier this spring, Robinson earned the Black Excellence on the Hill Award from the Massachusetts Black and Latino Legislative Caucus. He was nominated for the Black Excellence Award by Northampton Sen. Jo Comerford, who calls his work inspirational, citing his “unparalleled and inspired commitment to food security for all.”
