During her tenure, the organization also received a Health Equity Award in 2021 for developing a non-emergency medical transportation program for the community.

Ms. Sayers graduated with a Bachelor of Science in human resources management and services from Bluefield University in 1992. She subsequently earned a Master of Science in Management with an emphasis in health care administration from Marshall University in 1997.

In light of her professional success, Ms. Sayers and the AASC staff received a Virginia Governor's Housing Award for Best Affordable Housing Development for a Senior Living Community in 2019.
