Award honors fallen principal, nominations currently being accepted

Staten Island, NY – Borough President Vito J. Fossella has announced that nominations are currently being accepted for the Patrick F. Daly Award. This award goes to two educators who exemplify the values of fallen principal Patrick Daly, who was gunned down in Red Hook, Brooklyn, 31 years ago while searching for a student who had left the school building.

“It is my privilege to continue this award that honors the legacy, life, and sacrifice of principal Mr. Patrick Daly who selflessly cared for and nurtured his students both inside and outside of the classroom,” said Borough President Fossella. “I look forward to presenting this award to two educators who embody the same principles and values of Mr. Daly.”

Anyone who wishes to nominate a teacher, guidance counselor, assistant principal, or principal may do so. The award will be given in Mr. Daly’s memory, honoring his legacy of service to the community, his steadfast commitment to his students, and his leadership.

“On behalf of the Daly family, I would like to thank the Borough President for keeping my father’s memory and legacy alive as he continues to recognize the achievements of the many outstanding educators serving Staten Island’s students with this award,” said Pat Daly, the son of Mr. Daly. “I look forward to meeting the recipients.”

Nominations for the award can be submitted until Aug. 2. For full details, please visit https://www.statenislandusa.com/patrickdalynomination.html.
