CCHS faculty members Ashleigh Brown '00, English Department, and James O’Neill, Religious Studies Department are both finalists for the Archdiocese of Boston’s Excellence in Education Award.
Mrs. Brown has been teaching at CCHS for 15 years, and Mr. O’Neill is entering his 41st year of teaching at Central Catholic. Both were nominated for the award by fellow teachers.
According to the Archdiocese of Boston, the Excellence in Education Award honors elementary and secondary school teachers’ commitment to developing saints and scholars in the Catholic schools in the Boston Archdiocese. The teachers nominated continue to demonstrate strong leadership qualities, model a faith-filled life, promote academic excellence and are committed to their students and school. Every day, they inspire students from all backgrounds and abilities to learn and they actively collaborate with their peers, students, and families to create a welcoming environment and culture of success.
Mrs. Brown and Mr. O’Neill will be interviewed by the Archdiocese of Boston in April and will learn if they will be named award winners soon.
Congratulations to Mrs. Brown and Mr. O'Neill on being nominated for such a distinguished award! Good luck!
