The Lillian Award is presented annually in memory of Lillian V. Eisenberg (1911-1983), a woman who consistently treated all people with dignity, respect and kindness. Lillian believed, “It is important to do well, but it is important to do good.” She was the mother of Davida Fox-Melanson, Carlisle School Superintendent from 1992-2004. The Eisenberg family endows this award. (Photo by Beth Clarke)
