Charter school leaders honor three legislators with Torchbearer Award on Charter Awareness Day
 
Hartford, CT – The Northeast Charter Schools Network (NECSN) today hosted its inaugural Charter Awareness Day at the State Capitol, which included sharing the good work of the state’s charter schools and recognizing lawmakers who have been supportive of them. 
 
Early Wednesday afternoon, charter school leaders awarded Sen. Martin Looney, Rep. Noreen Kokoruda, and Rep. Douglas McCrory with Torchbearer Awards. NECSN’s Torchbearer Awards are given to state leaders who do exceptional work on behalf of charter school children.
 
 
“We were honored to be able to showcase the diversity of Connecticut’s 22 public charter schools, and share the transformative effect they’ve had on children in our state,” said Jeremiah Grace, Connecticut state director for the Northeast Charter Schools Network. “It’s truly a blessing to have elected leaders that recognize the work of our public charter schools, and who are such fierce advocates for providing every Connecticut child with great public school options.”
