Cambridge School Volunteers Inc. (CSV) honored approximately 1,000 of its volunteers who served in kindergarten through grade 12 of the Cambridge Public Schools during the 2002-03 school year at a reception hosted at the Harvard Faculty Club on May 7.

Sullivan, and Cambridge Public Schools’ Valerie G. Spriggs, CSV Executive Director Jennifer Singh awarded certificates to those who had volunteered for four, 10, and 15 years.
