News & Happenings

Mr. Foster sure sounds like the real thing to these ears. Here’s one (“Good Man Bad Thing”) I’ll be playing for the rest of the year.

Dear Mr. Foster:

As chair of the Awards and Recognition Committee of the Connecticut Association of
Schools, I am pleased to inform you that you have been selected by our association as
the recipient of the 2015 Distinguished Friend of Education Award! Congratulations!
This is the highest award given by our association to persons not directly involved in
public education. You were nominated for this prestigious award by Windham High
School Music Director Raymond Sinclair and Principal Dorothy Potter.

This award is given annually to an individual outside the field of education who has
made strong contributions to public education at the local, state, regional or national
level. Through your fundraising efforts, you have made a prodigious personal and
financial investment in WHS' music program and its students; and you have brought
many rewards to the larger community.


The presentation of the Distinguished Friend of Education Award will be made at the
annual CAS Volunteer Recognition Banquet to be held on March 4, 2015, at 5:00 p.m. at
the Aqua Turf Club in Southington. We would be most pleased to have you and one
other person of your choosing as our guests for the awards dinner. Please contact Mr.
Sinclair or Ms. Potter immediately if you have a conflict that will prevent you from
accepting the award at this time. Assuming you are able to join us on the 4th, would
you kindly R.S.V.P. via email to Barbara O'Connor? Her email address is on the enclosed
invitation. The cost of the dinner is $38 per person if you wish to invite additional
business associates, friends or family members to the event.

On behalf of the Awards and Recognition Committee of the Connecticut Association of
Schools, I offer you my warmest congratulations on the achievement of this distinction.

Best regards,

Paul Newton, Chair
CAS Awards and Recognition Committee
