|D70 Names Character Counts Leadership Honoree|
Libertyville School District 70 is honoring Libertyville Township Supervisor Kathleen O’Connor as this year’s District 70 Character & Leadership Award recipient.
O’Connor, a beloved Libertyville resident who raised her children in District 70 schools, exemplifies the traits of the character-building program used in District 70 schools, including trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship, according to Holly Simon, Butterfield speech-language pathologist, who nominated Mrs. O’Connor for the award. Simon noted that Mrs. O’Connor is “hard-working, always ready to be there for others in all aspects of her life,” even during non-working hours.
District students, families and teachers often collected items for the Libertyville Township Food Pantry, which Mrs. O’Connor supervises and directs. The pantry helps supply food to those in need.
