Curran, Bordell Honored at Scholars’ Recognition Dinner
Senior Philip Curran and CHS English teacher Mr. Terry Bordell were honored guests at the 2012 Capital Area School Development Association (CASDA) Scholars Recognition Dinner, held at the Desmond Hotel in Colonie this May. Invitation to this annual event is reserved for graduating seniors from Capital Region schools who have demonstrated exceptional scholarship and service to their community.
As part of his recognition, Phil was asked to nominate the teacher who had the greatest influence on him. “I learned to value my education; to learn because I truly enjoyed learning," Phil wrote in a statement to CASDA about how Mr. Bordell made the greatest impact on him. "The intellectual reward is much greater with that mindset.”
CASDA's Scholar Recognition Program is a business education partnership which recognizes outstanding scholastic achievement and examines key issues in education. The event was attended by Phil, his father, Mr. Bordell, and CHS assistant principal Amy Potter, along with hundreds of other students and educators from Capital Region public, private and parochial schools.
