STAMFORD, Conn. -- The Stamford Public Education Foundation will hold its eighth annual Excellence in Education Awards on Monday, March 16, from 6-9 p.m., at UConn-Stamford’s Rich Concourse, 1 University Place.

Each year, the Excellence in Education Awards recognize businesses and community leaders for their commitment and service to education in Stamford. It is an opportunity to celebrate the hard work and dedication of both Stamford’s business community and the devoted individuals who help students perform better, both in school and beyond into post-secondary education and the working world.

This year, SPEF will be presenting the following awards:

  • SPEF Corporate Award to PwC for its commitment to volunteerism
  • SPEF Educators Award to Mike Meyer, Stamford Public Schools, for his collaborative leadership in the Stamford Schools
  • SPEF Leadership Award to Eileen and Fred Springer for their philanthropic support of SPE and the community

The event also serves to raise funds for SPEF, which is 100 percent donor funded. All of its educational resources supplied to Stamford schools are provided at no cost to the district.

Sponsors for this year’s event include Bob and Pat Phillips, PwC, RBS, Compass Group, GE Asset Management, Pitney Bowes, Chase Bank, First County Bank, Jennifer and Mark Lapine, and The Berkowitz Law Firm.
