Sixteen Pittsford Community Members to Be Awarded 2019 New York State PTA Honorary Life Membership Award

Pittsford PTSA will recognize 16 members of the Pittsford community with New York State PTA Honorary Life Membership Awards at a special ceremony on Tuesday, April 30, 2019, at 7 p.m. at Mendon High School. There will be a social gathering starting from 6:30 p.m. with light refreshments provided for all who attend right before the ceremony in the MHS Commons Area. The ceremony and social gathering are open to the public.

Recipients were nominated by community members and colleagues for consistently demonstrating a dedication to the youth of Pittsford in three categories: volunteer efforts and/or significant contributions above and beyond normal job expectations over an extended period of time, outstanding personal qualities, and a continued availability and willingness to serve, directly or in an administrative capacity, the needs of Pittsford’s youth.

The Pittsford PTSA makes a donation in honor of all the awardees to the New York PTA Twin Projects fund, a scholarship program benefiting high school seniors seeking an education degree or mid-career educators pursuing advanced study.

Congratulations to 2019 award winners, Elizabeth Norten, Gail Hall, Irene Hopp, Janet Wright, Jill Drake, Jocelyn Apo, Jori Cincotta, Judith Flagg, Loraine Young, Madeleine Lucas, Mark Hurley, Mary Sue Dehn, Maureen Kempski, Ray Brown, Susan Dodsworth, and Teresa Seeler.
