Joyce Fruscio, a Title 1 reading teacher at Brayton School, singled out program coordinator Noella Carlow for her efforts.
"She started this program, she works endlessly. The kids are at school until 5:30. She's in school before anyone else is, her program doesn't start until 3:30 but she's there at seven, 7:30 in the morning," Fruscio said. "And not only does she help do everything in the after-school program, if we need something during the day, she's right there helping us to do whatever we need and she's the reason why I feel this program is as good as it is."
