CAS celebrates this event annually to publicly acknowledge the work of parents and other volunteers for their contributions to schools across the state.
More than 550 participants from 78 elementary, middle and high schools were treated to a four-course meal and were entertained by pianist Kim Quinn from Albert D. Griswold Middle School in Rocky Hill.
Honorees were presented with plaques and corsages to commemorate their service.
John Maziarz, Commercial Sales Account Manager for Connecticut Natural Gas and a volunteer for Junior Achievement, was keynote speaker.
Maziarz said, “Volunteers are the silent heroes of our schools.” He also said “… they may be silent in what they do, but their impact is great.”
