Bishop Grimes is pleased to announce that Ms. Marni Nolan, Social Studies teacher and department chair, has been awarded the 2016 New York State Senate “Teacher Excellence” Award by Senator John DeFrancisco. In addition to her teaching duties, Ms. Nolan is also the advisor to Bishop Grimes’ award-winning No Place for Hate student organization that seeks ways to celebrate the diversity of our Bishop Grimes students. Ms. Nolan also is a dean of discipline and is the faculty-appointed representative to the Board of Trustees. This past winter, Ms. Nolan was also a member of the BG Pep Band.
On behalf of the Bishop Grimes community, we extend our sincere thanks and heart-felt congratulations to Ms. Nolan for this well-deserved recognition. As Sen. DeFrancisco stated in his congratulations letter to Ms. Nolan, “Thank you for going above and beyond to inspire those who you teach.”
