Attachment 2017 Award Recipient Summary

The Eugene Policelli Service Awards were created in honor and memory of Dr. Eugene Policelli who served on the South Windsor Board of Education from 1985 to 1998. Dr. Policelli made substantive contributions as the chairman of the Space and Growth Committee which resulted in the approval of the high school referendum. After his passing, a subcommittee was formed to look for ways to honor his service to the Board of Education. Dr. Policelli also had an interest in student community service, particularly for high school students. He worked tirelessly to maintain high quality standards. With this in mind the subcommittee wanted service to be the key element in developing a memorial to him.

The Eugene Policelli Service Awards were created by the Board to honor up to three high school seniors and three adults who work or live in the South Windsor community and who have made outstanding contributions through volunteer service. The first awards were given in April of 2003, and have been presented annually each year thereafter. The award recipients’ names are added to the memorial plaques located in South Windsor High School’s main lobby.
