The Ben Emdin Guiding Principles in Action Award is presented each year at the June board of education meeting to those in the Forest Hills Public Schools and community who have started a project of long-term benefit, and/or have consistently demonstrated the district’s guiding principles over many years of service. This year’s recipients are Dr. Paul O’Grady, the FHPS transition center and student services team, and Robert VandenBerg Sr. The Judy Bouley Perseverance in Action Award was created in 2016 by the staff at Central Woodlands 5/6 School to honor their school counselor, Judy Bouley. The award is presented annually to a Forest Hills Public Schools employee, who, in the performance of their job, demonstrates positive personal and professional attributes, which have been shown by Judy, such as resiliency and perseverance. This year’s recipients of the Judy Bouley Perseverance in Action Award are Jill Capozzoli, special education teacher at Forest Hills Northern High School, and Tim Hollern, assistant principal at Forest Hills Eastern High School.
