Anthony Allison is the executive director of Norwalk Acts.
This week’s Shout Outs go to those with the vision to create a better future for all of Norwalk’s children.
Shout Out to Dr. Saloma (Sally) B. Grose, recipient of Norwalk ACTS’ first annual Visionary Award in recognition of her “Courage, Tenacity and Vision in support of all of Norwalk’s Children.” Dr. Grose has dedicated her time, talent and resources toward making a positive and sustained impact in the lives of Norwalk’s children, according to Anthony Allison, Norwalk ACTS’ Executive Director.
A Norwalk resident for nearly 35 years, Dr. Grose has enjoyed a rewarding career as an educator, earning her Doctor of Education (Ed.D) from Teachers College Columbia University, becoming a teacher of middle school and high school in the Westport School District and later, a principal at Hills Point Elementary School. In addition to teaching, Dr. Grose has served on countless boards of nonprofit organizations focused on strengthening the community’s families and children.
Shout Out to all of the 2017 Brien McMahon and Norwalk High School graduates who received their diplomas this week. We wish all these young people the best of luck with their future endeavors. Congratulations!
Shout Out to Norwalk Public Schools for participating in the federally funded Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), to ensure that no child goes hungry this summer. SFSP provides low-income children with a nutritious breakfast and lunch when school is not in session. This summer, USDA plans to serve more than 200 million free meals to children 18 years and under nationwide. In Norwalk, meals will be available starting June 26 at the these SFSP Sites.
