"Over the past year, education has become deeply personal for all of us and we know our local educators have carried the weight of uncertainty while tasked with finding creative ways to encourage and educate their students, often from a distance or in a hybrid environment. And for that, we commend you."
Dorothy A. Savarese, Cape Cod 5 Chair and CEO


Thank you to our guest speaker, best-selling author and local resident Anne LeClaire, for her inspirational message.
