The award included a certificate and a letter from President Obama, reports parent Cecilia Padilla Brill, who shared in the honors during Clifford’s Annual Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast. “I along with several parent volunteers, were extremely grateful for this honorable recognition,” Padilla Brill said by email.  “We are very proud of our small school.”
