Molly Abate Receives Community Character Award
Posted on 09/12/2023




The Greenwich Community Character Award

The Greenwich Community Character Award is given each year by Breanna and Reid Lundy. The recipient has not only demonstrated excellent character throughout the years at Greenwich Central School—but also must design a project which “gives back” to the school and/or community.

The awardee for 2023 was junior, Molly Abate. Molly has exhibited strong character and kindness throughout all of her years in school. 

Molly’s idea for her Award Project was to put together welcome packages for new students to the district. After being chosen by the Lundy’s and their selection committee, Molly fully committed to seeing this idea through. She worked all summer putting together the creative welcome packages. She used the district logo to have string bags and t-shirts made and designed a pamphlet all about Greenwich school and our surrounding community. The pamphlet includes our students’ favorite places to eat and hang out. In addition, it lists school clubs, sports and local job possibilities. The string bag includes literature from the Greenwich Free Library and the Greenwich Youth Center. It also includes a gift certificate from Jay’s Pizza (thank you Jay’s!). Molly has done an exceptional job with this project.

This is another example of our community's investment in our students. A big thank you to all involved!
