There is a star among us! Congratulations to Christy Gallese, Director of Expanded Learning Opportunities, who was recently named a 2020 Rising Star by Vermont Business Magazine. The “40 under 40” award recognizes individuals in the state who support the economy and give back through service.
Gallese was nominated for her work supporting working parents through our Afterschool Program and by leading the creation of a child care program during COVID, as well as her numerous volunteer efforts, including serving as the Chair of SerVermont.
“I am incredibly honored to receive this recognition for service in my community,” said Gallese. “Any impact I have made was only possible through the work of colleagues and peers in the District and greater community for whom I am profoundly grateful to gain inspiration from, learn and grow from, be supported by, and serve alongside.”
Vermont Business Magazine will honor Vermont’s most accomplished young leaders at a Rising Stars virtual event on November 10 and honorees will also be featured in the November issue of Vermont Business Magazine.
This is not Gallese’s first accolade in BSD; in 2018 she was selected as one of only 15 individuals in the country to serve as a US Afterschool Ambassador.
Great job and congrats Christy… thank you for all you do!
