Last year’s winner, Heather Marzenski, received this award because, “Heather’s application was sincere, heartfelt and very deserving,” said firm founder Robert Reeves. “Not only does she run multiple fundraisers throughout the year to make up for the budget shortfalls that directly impact students in her classroom, but she collects used clothing and shoes outside of school to assist these same families. She also does all of this while working multiple jobs, finishing her Master’s degree, and caring for her own family, which includes a two-month newborn.”
This year’s winner will be notified by phone, email or mail prior to January 15, 2016 and must show proof of enrollment before disbursement of the award.
