Faculty awards. Concord-Carlisle High School (CCHS) Principal Peter Badalament congratulated Librarian Robin Cicchetti and Chemistry teacher Carla Sechman for receiving the Goldin Foundation Award of Excellence in Education when he spoke to the Concord-Carlisle Regional School Committee on February 24. The Goldin Foundation recognizes and rewards educators who have made outstanding contributions in their classrooms, schools and communities. The Foundation seeks to foster the respect for and the appreciation of educators.

The Goldin Foundation for Excellence in Education provides six annual awards of $500 to schools that are members of the Education Collaborative for Greater Boston. CCHS is particularly honored because two of the six recipients are from CCHS.

Two students are awarded Posse Scholarships. METCO students Carolina Infante and Chenara Seepersad have received Posse Scholarships. The Posse Foundation is a comprehensive and renowned college access and youth leadership development program in the U.S. Posse identifies public high school students with extraordinary academic and leadership potential who may be overlooked by the traditional college selection process.

According to their website,, “Posse Scholars graduate at a rate of 90% and make a visible difference on campus and throughout their professional careers.” Jufante will be going to Union College and Seepersad plans to attend Hamilton College. ∆
