The Sonoma Valley Education Foundation went national this morning in a big way — a message of thanks on the huge Nasdaq Tower on Manhattan’s Times Square. Executive Director Angela Ryan coordinated the salute in honor of American Education Week.
“We know our educators, school administrators, and staff have been doing their jobs under extraordinary circumstances since the beginning of the pandemic and continue to face the aftermath of distance learning today,” Ryan said. “To express our gratitude for their sustained and tremendous commitment to students, we wanted to find the most public stage to express our appreciation, and what better place to do that than Times Square in New York City.”
Ryan urged the Sonoma Valley community to “celebrating the many good people who work tirelessly to help our youth remain successful and engaged despite an unprecedented year of learning.”
