Nominate an Exceptional School Volunteer

Do you know a deserving volunteer who has worked tirelessly for the Piedmont Schools?  The deadline for nominations is March 15, 2013.



This award is presented annually to individuals who have volunteered their efforts over a period of time and made a difference because of their involvement and commitment to Piedmont’s youth.

The previous recipients were: Hunter McCreary (1998); Ann Chandler (1999); Ruth Cuming (2000); Lisa Lomenzo (2001); jointly by Cathie Geddeis and Marion Souyoultzis (2002); jointly by Fritz and Mary Wooster (2003); Elizabeth (Betsy) Gentry (2004); Cynthia Gorman (2005); Grier Graff (2006); Julia Burke (2007); Maude Pervere (2008); jointly to Anne-Marie Lamarche and Mark Menke (2009); Janiele Maffei Tovani (2010); Andrea Swenson (2011) and June Monach (2012).

Art Hecht was a tireless community volunteer, dedicated to students in both Piedmont and Oakland. He served on Piedmont’s Board of Education from 1970 to 1982. Art was particularly involved with the Piedmont Continuation High School (now Millennium High School). In 1998, the Art Hecht Volunteer of the Year Award was established in his memory.

Nominations for this award are invited and will be kept strictly confidential. The deadline for nominations is March 15, 2013.  A selection committee vote will determine the volunteer to be honored at their May 8, 2013 meeting, when the Board of Education will acknowledge the honoree’s good works and present the gift of a work of student art.  The student will receive a monetary award and commendation from the Board.
