LEE FLAXER AWARD
In April of each year, SEF begins accepting nominations for the Lee Flaxer Award. This award is given in the spirit of Lee Flaxer, who served as principal of Heights Elementary School for many years. She was an outstanding leader who demonstrated that compassion and caring were essential to a positive learning atmosphere. The recipient of this award should be a person who has had an impact on the lives of children through dedication and personal involvement.
The award is given out annually at the Sharon Education Foundation's Opening Reception, which is held in September. The recipient of the award is recognized in front of the community, as invited guests to the Reception include school administration, faculty, town selectman, school committee members, other leaders in the community, donors and friends to SEF.
