U.S. Sen. Lieberman Will Visit Annie Fisher School To Honor Hartford’s 2012 Teacher of the Year

 U.S. Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman will visit the Annie Fisher STEM Magnet

School on Thursday, Oct. 18, 2012, to recognize Science Teacher Keith

Sevigny as one of “Joe’s Heroes,” an award that the senator has been

conferring throughout his career to Connecticut individuals who

perform outstanding work on behalf of their fellow residents. Mr.

Sevigny, a native of Windsor Locks, was a cancer research scientist who

decided to change careers and become a Hartford Public School

science teacher. In 2010, he transferred to the Annie Fisher STEM

School, which U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan earlier this year

named a federal Blue Ribbon School for its progress in improving

student academic achievement. Mr. Sevigny has been a major

contributor to the school’s success. Sen. Lieberman’s visit will also

include a presentation of science projects by Mr. Sevigny’s students. As

one of “Joe’s Heroes”, Mr. Sevigny is in good company. Among the

people who have recently been recognized by Sen. Lieberman are: Curt

Welling, President & CEO of AmeriCares; Gloria McAdam, CEO and

President of Foodshare, and Rear Admiral Sandra Stosz, the first woman

to be named superintendent of a U.S. military academy.
