At our Gala on June 28th, MAP is proud to honor one of the D’Abate School’s extraordinary teachers, Carmen Rodriguez (below), for her years of dedication and devotion to the young people of Olneyville. We will present Carmen with the inaugural Abelardo Hernandez Memorial Award for Service to Community. Carmen is retiring this year after 32 years of service to the D’Abate School. Carmen served on the MAP Board of Directors and Advisory Council for many years and is a true champion of the young people in our community.
“Mr. Abe” (below) was a great friend to all of the students and families with whom we work. Dubbed the unofficial Mayor of Olneyville, his generosity and commitment to his neighborhood were an example to all of us. We were heartbroken by his passing earlier this year, and are dedicating this gala and this new annual award to his memory.
Event sponsors include CVS, Hasbro, BayCoast Bank, Bank Newport, Harbor One, Navigant Credit Union, Liuna!, Neighborhood Health Care of Rhode Island, Pawtucket Credit Union, Contech Medical, and Parsons Capital Management.
