The Pottstown chapter of the NAACP was recently recognized, at a meeting of the Pottstown School Board with a Superintendent's Award, commending the organization for their civic responsibility and for making a positive difference in the lives of the citizens of Pottstown.
Superintendent of schools, Stephen Rodriguez presented the award saying; It is my pleasure to recognize the valiant efforts of a community group that has made a difference in our community. The Pottstown Chapter of the NAACP, National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, gets involved in issues that matter to our community.
Whether it is marching for a worthy cause, helping to set up vaccination clinics, working with elected officials to advocate for fair funding, or advocating for people who can’t advocate for themselves, whether it’s hands-on support for the arts or food needed for families that can’t afford it, The NAACP shows up.
They have been led by their president for the past several years who is a graduate of Pottstown High School, sent his children through the district, and lives here. Mr. Corson will accept on behalf of the chapter but when I asked, he repeatedly gives credit to his team of people who work in front and behind the scenes to make life better for the people of Pottstown. I am honored to bestow this superintendent award to the Pottstown chapter of the NAACP. The certificate reads; In recognition of your decades-long support and advocacy for all the people who live and work in Pottstown.
Congratulations on many years of dedicated leadership. Thank you for giving us another reason to say, proud to be from Pottstown.
