Pat Pierce Award

The “Patricia Cummings Pierce Excellence in Teaching Award,” sponsored by TSEF, is presented annually to a distinguished educator from the five-town area who advocates for students, has a willingness to support colleagues and expands professional horizons. The Pat Pierce Award recognizes the exceptional characteristics of Pat's life - her deep commitment to children and her profession, as well as her great enthusiasm for learning and life.

The 2022 Award is presented to:

The Entire Mount Abe District Staff

for student pandemic support!

In a spirit that Pat Pierce would have embraced, TSEF is taking this opportunity to recognize the entire Mt. Abraham Unified School District staff for the creativity, innovation, collegiality, and expansion of horizons that they continually manifest during these challenging times.

The entire staff includes: teachers, support staff, food service staff, bus drivers, custodians and administrators. All contributed to the education, health, well being, and deep support of the students in the Mount Abraham district, and provided grace to each other and to the students in a very tough time.
