Posted on 01/26/2017
The Schenectady City School District Educational Foundation held its annual celebration on January 19 at Proctors in Schenectady to celebrate education and the achievements of students and staff in the district and generous benefactors.
Schenectady High School student musicians provided entertainment and the culinary students catered the event.
The Dr. Ray and June Benenson Community Award was presented to the Reading is Fun program and The Ernie Kahn Outstanding Alumnus recipient was Shirley Readdean. Meghan Libertucci, 2016 SCSD Teacher of the Year, was also recognized.
The mission of the Schenectady City School District Educational Foundation is to provide supplemental funding for the enhancement of learning opportunities for the students in the Schenectady Public Schools. Since 2006 the foundation has awarded 208 grants worth about $165,000. The evening is a tribute to the students and to the adults who have contributed to that mission.
