Hosted by the Harvard University Office of Government, Community and Public Affairs, the reception took place at the Gutman Library of the School of Education.

After welcoming remarks by Mayor Henrietta Davis, Superintendent of Schools Jeffrey Young, Massachusetts Secretary of Education Paul Reville, and a special address by Peabody School student Jonathan Herrera, awards honoring the late Mack I. Davis were presented to the following outstanding volunteers: Patricia Almeida (Intergenerational Math Program, MLK, Jr. School); Denise Han (Classroom Assistant, Fletcher-Maynard Academy); George Kent (Tutoring Center, CRLS); Bill Sullivan (Volpe National Transportation Systems Center Reading Buddy, Kennedy-Longfellow School); Matthew Weiss (IBM KeyPal, Kennedy-Longfellow School); and Gail Lemily Wiggins (College Planning & Essay Writing, CRLS). In addition, the Kenneth S. Neal Award was presented to teacher Rose Grandinetti Mallard, for her long-standing efforts connecting ELL students with tutors at CRLS. CSV was also proud to honor Cambridge residents Robert Wolf and Carol Cerf for 15 and 20 years respectively of volunteer service.
