The CAPE parent group recognized outstanding parents, community members, teachers and staff members for their dedication to students, their schools and community at the 43rd annual CAPE awards night on Tuesday, March 19, 2019 at Plainfield South High School.
CAPE is the committee for the Coordination of Administration and Parent groups for Educational efficiency in District 202. It serves as a “bridge” between district leadership and the parent groups for all 30 District 202 schools.
The group presented its 2019 CAPE Lifetime Contributor award to volunteer leader and current District 202 staff member Margaret Kantor.
“Margaret is known for her tenacity, commitment to getting the job done, putting students first in all that she does, and fostering a positive culture,” CAPE President Betsey Vinson said.
CAPE also presented its 2019 CAPE Community Award to district parent, volunteer and community activist Lucia Rossi-Nichols.
“Since day one Lucia has been involved in her children’s schools giving hundreds of hours of her time,” Vinson said, also praising Rossi-Nichols for her advocacy for victim of domestic violence and human trafficking.
“The entire Plainfield community and District 202 are lucky to have Lucia as one of our own,” Vinson said. “She truly embodies the spirit of the CAPE award.”
