I returned to my office on Sunday, and Monday, around 11 a.m. this was delivered to me. I never know how to react with such recognition, but I am totally honored and motivated to earn such an award.

Each year at our Annual Inspiration Event a member of our community is presented with the Elizabeth M. Pfriem Civic Leadership Award. The award is given to a person who has made a difference in the work that the Bridgeport Public Education Fund undertakes and who is committed to equity in educational resources and high academic achievement for all our students.
It gives me great pleasure to inform you that this year you have been selected to receive the Elizabeth M. Pfriem Civic Leadership award. Your contributions to the Bridgeport Public School district are immeasurable. Your ability to grow the University programs that bring your students into the Bridgeport schools and allowing the Bridgeport students the experience of attending workshops on your campus is immeasurable. We can’t thank you enough.
This year, Mark Alvarez, Photography Teacher at Central High School, will send two of his students to photograph you for the Program Book. I will send you an e-mail with more specific details shortly – watch for an e-mail. On May 3rd please arrive at the Holiday Inn no later than 3:00 for official photographs.
The award will be presented at the celebration event on May 3rd 3:30 at the Holiday Inn. You will be a guest of the BPEF and may also bring an additional guest. Invitations will be mailed in April - if you would like invitations mailed to other friends and family, please let me know.
Congratulations Bryan this is an award you well deserve.
