District receives Helping Hands Award from Tri-County United Way

On Thursday, Nov. 12, the district was presented with the Tri-County United Way Helping Hands Award! This is the second consecutive year the district has received the award. 

The Helping Hands Award was established in 1999 and is given annually to a school district that exemplifies the philosophy that their core values reflect an alignment to the overall betterment of the local community and who believe in the mission of the United Way. 

“Queensbury Union Free School District’s long-standing support of United Superintendent Gannon commended Lisa Higley and other district employees for their efforts in helping the district receive this award.

Way campaigns, coupled with your employees commitments, made making the Helping Hands Award an easy choice,” said Peter L. Aust, interim executive director of the Tri-County United Way. 

“I would like to thank Lisa Higley for all her hard work in spearheading this project every year,” said Superintendent of Schools Kyle Gannon. “This award is a testament to the dedication Lisa and all of our employees have to serve the greater good. We are proud to receive this wonderful award. I’m pleased the money raised will be distributed within our greater community.”
