FRAMINGHAM – Arthur “Chip” Del Prete, who is retiring as the director of the Thayer Campus Alternative High School in Framingham was the recipient of the “We Are Grateful” award at last night’s 27th Annual Salute To Framingham at the Sheraton Hotel & Conference Center.
He has been director since 2011.
He is only the third individual to win the award.
It was first awarded last year to Edward Gotart and Paula Del Prete in 2018.
Gotgart retired at the end of the school year in 2018. He had many titles over the years in the district including Chief Operating Officer, Executive Director of Business and Operations, and interim Superintendent of Schools.
The award recognizes retiring senior level administrators for their outstanding career dedication to students’ education, enrichment and well being. These recipients have positively affected thousands of lives of children and families from across Framingham.
Last night’s 27th annual Salute to Framingham was sold out with more than 600 in attendance.
All proceeds from the Salute to Framingham benefit the Framingham High School Foundation which supports the extracurricular Activities, Arts, and Athletics at Framingham High School.
