Excellence in Education Awards 2022
Last month, the Stamford Public Education Foundation brought together over 250 guests at its 15th annual Excellence in Education Awards on Wednesday, June 1, 2022, at 600 Washington Boulevard. The event's theme was "Up on the Roof," inspired by the Drifters' 1962 hit, and offered guests breathtaking views of the City of Stamford from the rooftop terrace above the offices of NatWest, the presenting sponsor of the evening.
A glass of champagne welcomed community leaders and educators before strolling down the blue carpet, where smooth and rhythmic melodies by Project Music accompanied conversations of those who had not seen each other in person since before the beginning of COVID-19. A vibrant networking reception with a silent auction offering items donated by Hat Attack, Van Leeuwen Ice Cream, Nordstrom, Rockrimmon Country Club, Closets by Design, the New York Yankees, Salvi Earth, and more kept the crowd busy between grazings at gourmet culinary stations with donations of wine from Domaine Bousquet and beer from Two Roads Brewing.
At this year’s Excellence in Education Awards Ceremony, SPEF honored leaders in education, volunteerism, and community giving:
SPEF Leadership Award, Senator Patricia Billie Miller
SPEF Community Giving Award, Deloitte
SPEF Educator Award, Jennifer Argenio, Rogers International School
Stamford Public Schools’ Teacher of the Year Committee was also on hand to present their award to Jonathan Ringel of Stamford High School, as well as to their finalists and semi-finalists.
