Two Stamford women were among 11 Connecticu­t residents who received a 2019 Parental Involvemen­t Recognitio­n Award at the state capitol last week.

Yadira Esquivel was nominated by the Exchange Club Parenting Skills Center. Regan Allan was nominated by the Stamford Public Education Foundation, of which she is the program coordinato­r.

“Regan is a force to be reckoned with” SPEF Program Director Lindsay Wyman said. “She brings a deep sense of purpose and commitment to everything she does. She fiercely believes that all children deserve a high quality education, and fights daily for this to be true in all of the work that we do in the Stamford Public Schools.”

This award is issued from the State Education Resource Center, in collaborat­ion with the Commission on Women, Children, and Seniors. This annual award ceremony coincides with National Parental Involvemen­t Day, and recognizes parent contributi­ons to schools and communitie­s within the state.

Community organizati­ons, school leaders, and others are invited to nominate parents or guardians who have exemplifie­d parental involvemen­t and engagement in schools as well as community organizati­ons. Award recipients were selected based on their active involvemen­t in their child’s/children’s school and/or community.
