TWO STAMFORD PARENTS HONORED BY STATE COMMISSION
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.
