To the Editor: It is with mixed feelings that we received word that Leon Levesque, superintendent of the Lewiston Public Schools, will be retiring on December 31.
As a founding member of the board of the Lewiston Education Fund, Superintendent Levesque has dedicated much time and energy to his vision of building an endowment to ensure that students and teachers are supported in their desire for excellence in education and in promoting aspirations.
Superintendent Levesque has asked there be no celebration or material gifts in recognition of his retirement. But the Lewiston Education Fund would like to honor him in a manner befitting his passion for education and the youth in our community. The Lewiston Education Fund Board of Directors invites you to pledge a gift in Leon’s name to the endowment.
All gifts, regardless of amount, will help to ensure that his vision will come to fruition and the community will benefit from these endowed funds for many years. Since its inception, the Lewiston Education Fund has awarded more than $130,000 in grants to the teachers of the Lewiston Public Schools. Your donation will help this great work continue while honoring the commitment and dedication of Superintendent Levesque’s work.
Gifts may be made to: The Lewiston Education Fund, c/o The Dingley Building, 36 Oak Street, Lewiston, ME 04240. We hope you will join us in recognizing Leon Levesque’s 12 years of service by contributing to the Lewiston Education Fund.
Amie Parker, President, Lewiston Education Fund
