Chair Ceremony: Professional Staff Recognition

Each Spring, WEF, Wellesley College and the Wellesley School Committee come together to honor staff members who have contributed 25 years of their professional career to the Wellesley Public Schools. In appreciation for their years of service, the honorees receive a captain's chair embossed with the Town of Wellesley seal. Commonly known as The Chair Ceremony, friends and colleagues toast (and roast) the honorees with skits, poems and personal speeches. Each year, the Chair Ceremony serves as a wonderful celebration of the dedication of long-term Wellesley Public School employees.
