“Building a Foundation. Growing a Legacy.” was the theme of the retirement dinner celebration held Friday, June 8, 2018 at Knowlton Manor, Philadelphia. The honoree was the founding President and CEO of New Foundations Charter School, Paul Stadelberger. Paul, who is also the current and future President of the Frankford-Northeast Philadelphia Rotary Club (2017 – 2019) was additionally honored with the presentation of the Visionary Award by Club Past President and Director, Margaret Kelly. This additional honor was bestowed as Rotary, which places a strong emphasis on community service, wanted to recognize the great community service that Paul has embodied during his eighteen year tenure at New Foundations particularly his gift of being a visionary, who, together with Sheryl Perzel, brought the school into being.
We greatly appreciate Paul’s past service and we equally appreciate his future service as he continues on as president of our club!
