SPECIAL AWARDS

The Richard P. Bond Award
Dick Bond was New Canaan’s First Selectman from 1996 – 2003.  While controversial at times, there is no question that Dick had a significant impact on the town.  Today it bears dozens of marks directly attributable to him and his administration. One is our own Dunning Stadium, the building of which would have been abandoned had Dick not personally stepped in and revitalized the project.  A great friend of New Canaan education, Dick got started in town politics as a citizen fighting for a school budget that was under threat of deep cuts. He firmly believed that education was New Canaan’s “secret sauce”. The award we give today in his name is intended to recognize someone who, like Dick, has made a difference.  It goes to the graduating student, who during his/her NCHS career has had the greatest positive impact on NCHS – the student who, more than most, has made what is already a wonderful institution even better. Additionally, the recipient will have demonstrated strength in academics and in one or more non-academic areas.

  • ROBERT CARPENTER

While living in New Canaan for over 50 years, he chaired the Board of Education and was one of the founders of the New Canaan High School Scholarship Fund, serving on its Grant and Aide committee until his death in 2006. His lifelong passion was to ensure that every student had access to a good education. This fund, set up in honor of his memory, gives the award in his name to the student or students who have demonstrated a sustained commitment to helping others, but who also possess the character and skills of leadership that make them role-models among their peers.
