The Massachusetts Association of School Committees has named Eileen Wheeler Sheehan a Friend of Public Education for 2012. Diman Regional Vocational School Superintendent Marta Montelone presented the award at a reception before the high school’s graduation ceremonies on June 8th.
Ed Hill, member of the Diman School Committee, nominated MS Sheehan for her long time contributions to Fall River school children, especially those in the Middle Schools, through her work as leader of the Vocational Committee of the Fall River Rotary Club.
“She shows that she is passionate about the children’s education,” stated MR Hill. “Even though working with the schools is not part of Eileen’s business, she has been deeply committed to this public service over many years.”
