At the East Hampton Board of Education meeting on Monday night, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Judith Golden recognized several members of the community who had been nominated for a Friends of Education Award.
The Friends of Education Award recognizes and honors people who have made an outstanding contribution to public education in the following categories: School Volunteer, Parent, Local Government Official, Community Leader and Legislator.
Nominations considered such things as whether the nominee could be considered a positive agent for change, has affected the cultures of school communities, has inspired others to achieve or has provided a special service above and beyond the usual service.
"These are people who have helped us in extraordinary ways," Golden said. "We're so grateful to them."
Those recognized were awarded a framed Friends of Education certificate. They were:
Dan Singleton, James Cama, Monique Sherer, Barbi Pawlewitz, Erin Savage, Joseph Langenfeld, Paula Mallory, Denise Nowakowski and Memorial School PTO officers.
