The Archdiocese of Boston Catholic Schools Office, with support from the Catholic Schools Foundation, announced the recipients of Archdiocese of Boston Excellence in Education Award April 23.
Administrators, staff, pastors, parents and students were encouraged to nominate excellent teachers in their schools.
