Seymour names library, playground after veteran educators
By Jean Falbo-Sosnovich
SEYMOUR >> Two former veteran educators who dedicated their lives to helping Seymour students excel both in and out of the classroom will be honored Tuesday by the Board of Education.
The board will hold a special dedication ceremony at 6:30 p.m. at Chatfield-LoPresti School, 51 Skokorat St., to commemorate the naming of the Vincentina Kobasa Playground and the Kenneth Ewaskie Library Media Center.
School officials encouraged the public to attend the dedication, which will be followed by a reception.
The late Kobasa spent nearly 30 years teaching in Seymour, and was a longtime member of the school board. In 1996, the playground at the former LoPresti School, which was built thanks to a grant Kobasa worked hard to secure, was named in her honor.
