We celebrated our wonderful parent and alumni parent volunteers, including the fourth annual Thomas Malcolm Volunteer Award winners, at our annual volunteer appreciation dinner May 5.
Launched in 2014, the Malcolm Award is named for Middle School science teacher Tom Malcolm, who has modeled the ideals of community service and volunteerism for our school community for four decades. This year’s award winners are Sonja Brisard P’20, David Honor ’67, and Lisa Nichols P’08, ’11.
Past winners of the Malcolm Award are Mr. Malcolm; Mike and Debbie Bertucci P’15; Sharon Bryant P’21, ’24; Tom Dryjanski P’05, ’08, ’10, ’14; Sharon Eichinger P’12, ’15; Masheba Gailey-Harris P’20, ’23; Charles Lay P’17; Katie Nathwani P’24; Mark O’Neill; Scott Panozzo P’11, ’14, ’15; David Perry P’15; and Marcia Thomas P’10.
