Bill Parks

At the start of the Sept. 19 School Committee meeting, Superintendent Stefan Czaporowski presented an “Above and Beyond” certificate to William R. Parks, retired chief executive officer of the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Westfield, and a longtime partner of Westfield’s schools.

In presenting the certificate, Czaporowski listed some of Parks’ affiliations in the community, including with the Kiwanis Club, Chamber of Commerce, the Westfield Spanish American Association, Westfield Athenaeum, United Way of America, as an Outstanding Community Spirit award winner of the Red Cross, and Kiwanian of the Year in 2015.
