``You are a symbol of New Milford pride, hope for an amazing future and proof that with knowledge comes responsibility...``
Dear Mr. Bailey,
The New Milford Education Foundation is thrilled to request the pleasure of your company as our Humanitarian of the Year at our first annual Gala on Thursday, April 20, 2017 at Seasons in Washington Township. Through educational grants, students scholarships, and funding for special projects, The Foundation strives to stimulate excellence in our schools and raise the profile of public education in New Milford.
For our first gala, we chose to honor someone who is an inspiration to the New Milford School community. You are a symbol of New Milford pride, hope for an amazing future and proof that with knowledge comes responsibility. Anyone who knows your story and your commitment to our students would agree that you have set the bar for what it means to pay respect to your Alma Mater. Your service is rooted in your integrity, your willingness to build capacity in others, and your incredible generosity. Only elite warriors are worthy of Knighthood.
Should you accept this recognition as Humanitarian of the Year for our First Annual Gala, New Milford Education Foundation will publicly recognize you and celebrate the years of invaluable mentorship and continued support you have provided to our students for college education. It is time we share your story of inspiration and generosity with the New Milford Community, and hope you allow us the honor.
