ANeSU seeks nominees for education awards
BRISTOL — Addison Northeast Supervisory Union is looking for help from the public in nominating and recognizing deserving individuals for this year’s annual Education Recognition and Patricia Pierce Excellence in Teaching Award Night.
The award night will be held Tuesday, May 15, 6:30-8 p.m. at the Mount Abraham Union High School auditorium.
This annual event honors ANESU staff members and members of the community who have made special contributions to the education of young people from the five town districts of Bristol, Lincoln, Monkton, New Haven, Starksboro, and Mt. Abraham Union Middle/High School.
The Patricia Cummings Pierce Excellence In Teaching Award is given in memory of longtime Bristol Elementary teacher Pat Pierce. It was initiated in 1994 to be given annually to a teacher from the 5-town school district. This award recognizes the exceptional characteristics of Pierce’s life — her deep commitment to children and her profession, as well as her great enthusiasm for learning and life.
Any teacher, PreK-12, employed within Addison Northeast schools is eligible to be nominated for this special award. Consider worthy candidates for this honor and complete the nomination form available from the supervisory union office and online at anesu.org.
This award is given with the support of the Tari Shattuck Education Foundation.
On May 15 ANESU will also distribute Education Recognition Awards. These awards are given to individuals whose efforts have supported students or who have made a special contribution to education during this school year.
The public is invited to nominate individuals from any area of the community including school custodians, educational assistants, food service staff, tutors, coaches, teachers, counselors, nurses, bus drivers, administrators, board members, secretaries, parents, volunteers, mentors, business owners, members of community organizations — anyone in the 5-town local communities who has promoted excellence in education and in any way contributed to the success of students in our schools.
Nomination forms are also available at the central office or at anesu.org.
