Congratulations unsung hero: D’Angela Nickerson


February is Parent Recognition Month. Strengthening Families Washington, of the Department of Early Learning for Washington State, believes there is no better way to recognize a parent, grandparent, foster or adoptive parent than by acknowledging the numerous and impressive things they do to strengthen their family and those around them in their community.

Seattle’s Child is proud to sponsor the Washington Unsung Hero Awards, recognizing our everyday heroes and honoring the important role caregivers play in children’s lives. There are 28 nominees for the 28 days of February, and Seattle’s Child will highlight each and every one.


Congratulations to the Unsung Hero for February 17

D’Angela Nickerson – Bellevue

D'Angela is a longtime friend and has three children. One is special needs, like my little boy, and this just increased our bond. Her love and support for her children are amazing. The grizzly mama bear comes out when having to fight the school system for them or just making sure nobody gets them down. She is so supportive to my family and any time I need her she is there for me. Her friendship is one that you can pick up where you left off no matter how long it’s been. I think she deserves this award and to be honored as a wonderful mother and friend.

Nominator: Yvonne Persa
