Illing Middle School recently received the Connecticut Association of Schools’ Arthur Director Leadership Award, along with a $250 donation to the school. The award was given to the school for promoting community giving through its school clubs and organizations.
In presenting the award, CAS Executive Director Earle Bidwell referred to the program application filed by last year’s Illing Student Council president, Kaitlyn Maloney. In it, Maloney, who is now a freshman at Manchester High School, specifically noted the Poetry Club and the Future Educators of America for enabling students to express themselves through words and actions.
Illing was one of the 50 schools that participated in last year’s CAS Leadership Conference.
