Dear Ms. Keane:
As chair of the Awards and Recognition Committee of the Connecticut Association of Schools, I am pleased to inform you that the Keane Foundation has been selected by our association as the recipient of the 2018 Distinguished Friend of Education Award! Congratulations! This is the highest award given by our association to organizations not directly involved in public education. You were nominated for this prestigious award by Susan Czapla, principal of Silas Deane Middle School, and Sally Dastoli, assistant superintendent for curriculum.
This award is given annually to an organization outside the field of education which has made impactful contributions to public education at the local, state, regional or national level. Based on the impressive nomination letter submitted by Ms. Czapla and Ms. Dastoli, it is clear that the Keane Foundation has been a powerful force for change, improving the lives and learning of Wethersfield students by providing them with innovative and extensive after-school enrichment opportunities and rich extra-curricular experiences. The Keane Foundation is an exemplar of what we consider to be a “Distinguished Friend of Education” and we thank you for your generosity in affording a wealth of resources and programs to the students of Wethersfield and at the same time bringing so many rewards to the larger community.
The presentation of the Distinguished Friend of Education Award will be made at an appropriate educational forum in the coming months. Ms. Czapla and Ms. Dastoli will be contacting you directly to arrange a date and time that are convenient for you. We encourage you to invite members and friends of the Keane Foundation to the event so that they can share in and celebrate this recognition.
On behalf of the Awards and Recognition Committee of the Connecticut Association of Schools, I offer you my warmest congratulations on the achievement of this distinction.
Best regards,
Donna Hayward, Chair
Awards and Recognition Committee
