Honoring educators, students and parents, the evening will include messages from Governor Gina Raimondo, Mayor Jorge Elorza, Rhode Island Commissioner of Education Angélica Infante-Green, and WaterFire Board Director Dr. Barbara Mullen, chief equity and diversity officer for the Providence Public School Department.
“We look forward to celebrating the successes of this very unusual year in education and acknowledging all the hard work on the part of teachers, students and parents during the coronavirus pandemic. Under Governor Raimondo and Commissioner Infante-Green’s leadership, Rhode Island stepped up and led the nation in distance learning,” Peter A. Mello, WaterFire managing director and CEO, said in a press release.
