We are extremely excited to announce this year's Second Annual Gala honorees! We hope you can join us again on April 11th at Seasons for another great night laughing, dancing, and honoring two very worthy women.
Distinguished Leader in Education - Peggy Saslow
Peggy is a fixture in New Milford and has been for many decades. Peggy was a teacher in district for 25 years and then a New Milford Board of Education member for 19 years. She is 94 years old and is showing no signs of slowing down! We couldn't be happier to show her the honor she deserves for her decades of service to this town.
Humanitarian of the Year - Freeholder Dr. Joan Voss
Freeholder Voss has been an elected official of ours on the Bergen County Board of Chosen Freeholders since 2011 after a 41 year teaching career and having served in the General Assembly. Dr. Voss is the Vice Chair of the Education Committee, and a member of the Regulated Professions, and Higher Education committees. She is Co-Chair of the Joint Committee on the Public Schools. Dr. Voss was appointed to the Commission on Business Efficiency in the Public Schools, the National Conference of State Legislatures’ Standing Committee on Education and NCSL’s Executive Committee. Dr. Voss' unrelenting commitment to education is something for which we should all strive!
These two women have demonstrated a unique drive towards improving the lives of children through education and we couldn't be happier for the chance to honor them. Please keep an eye out for the invitations which should be arriving shortly! We look forward to seeing everyone on April 11th to celebrate a lifetime achievement of two giants in education.
