Blessed Francis Seelos Principal wins Penguins MVP
Multiple nominations contributed to Principal Robert Reese's, recognition by the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation as one of the area's Most Valuable Principals (MVP). Reese, principal at Blessed Francis Seelos Academy in Wexford is one of 15 winners of this award. Mr. Reese wears many hats as leader of the school of nearly 400 students. "He works very long hours and devotes many nights and weekends to projects big and small. Mr. Reese doesn't just delegate responsibility. If something needs to be done and resources are slim, he will step in and take on the task himself," wrote Alison Narvett in her nomination letter to the Penguins Foundation. It is not only his strive for excellence, but his passion for his students that further qualified him for the award. He knows each of his students by name, and uses his faith to keep students focused on what is important and spread kindness. "Mr. Reese demonstrates personal excellence through his faith and service. He is a role model and the Blessed Francis Seelos Community is lucky to have such a wonderful, committed individual," stated Steven Setzenfand, parent of a child at the school. This award is especially meaningful for all those that know Reese. He is an avid Penguins fan. In fact, last year the faculty and students threw a surprise party for him to celebrate his 10th year at the school. The surprise guest of honor was Iceburg, the Penguins mascot, who presented Mr. Reese with tickets to a Penguins hockey game. This year's principals that are named Penguins MVPs are awarded a monetary donation, along with a custom Penguins jersey, and tickets to a Penguins game. "The teachers are inspired by Mr. Reese's leadership to collaborate and effectively communicate with the children and their families. Through these daily connections, Mr. Reese has built a tight knit community of families that have one goal - inspiring their children's education through their faith. He is very deserving of this award," stated Setzenfand.
