Carney Award Presentation at Board Meeting

East Hartford Public Schools has won a communications award from the Connecticut Association of Boards of Education (CABE) for its video series highlighting school district staff members.

The EHPS Staff Spotlight video series won the 2022 Bonnie B. Carney Award of Excellence for Educational Communications in the Special Project (AV) Category. This monthly video series recognizes and highlights staff members around the school district who go above and beyond their job description and who make a deep impact on their school communities.

The videos are produced by the EHPS Communications Office and shared in the monthly East Hartford Pride newsletter, as well as on social media to reach the greater East Hartford Community.

Doug Foyle, CABE Area Director, delivered the award in person during the East Hartford Board of Education meeting on February 6.

During the presentation, Foyle said, “With this award, CABE’s goal is to identify and honor hardworking people in the school district for their continuing effort to communicate effectively.”

About the Bonnie B. Carney Award of Excellence for Educational Communications

In recognition of the good work that is being done on a daily basis, CABE established the Awards of Excellence for Educational Communications in 1975.  Effective communications with parents and taxpayers in a school district is a very significant part of the district's operation.  It is important for the community to be aware of the exciting activities and events taking place in our schools each day.

In 2016 the award was renamed in honor of longtime CABE staff member Bonnie B. Carney, who spent much of her 47 years at CABE focused on communications.
