Party Pics: Learning Leaders

Since 1996, the Stamford Public Education Foundation has worked to elevate student success in the city through educational programs that promote equitable access to public education. Two hundred guests celebrated the 17th annual Excellence in Education Awards at the Stamford Marriott Hotel & Spa in March. Hart Magnet Elementary School’s Patrice Moore won the SPEF Educator Award. The third-grade teacher was one of 22 standout educators nominated throughout the district. Susan Nabel was honored posthumously with the Leadership Award for her tireless efforts championing SPS students. Mayor Caroline Simmons presented Viking Global Foundation’s Executive Director Molly Brethauer with the Community Giving Award in recognition of their efforts to support early education programming. The evening began and closed with popular performances by the Stamford High School’s Madrigal Singers.
