Dear Williston Community,
It is my pleasure to share with you that Charlene Cross, our toddler teacher and the Assistant Children’s Center Administrator, and Keira Durrett ’88, our Children’s Center Director, were both recognized by the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care for their outstanding work.
Each year the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care gives out awards to exceptional educators and leaders in the field of early childhood education in each region of the state. I am proud to announce that Charlene has won the Exceptional Educator Award and Keira has won the Exceptional Leader Award. These awards are for Region 1 in the state which includes Hampden, Hampshire, Franklin and Berkshire Counties.
Congratulations to Charlene and Keira on this fantastic achievement! I hope you will congratulate both of them when you see them on campus—this award comes as no surprise, but it’s a testament to the work they do and the passion with which they do.
