Ithaca City School District (ICSD) Superintendent Luvelle Brown last night was honored by the Boy Scouts of America, Baden-Powell Council with its prestigious Tompkins County Distinguished Citizen Award. The award recognizes individuals who set positive examples for others and who demonstrate concern and significant care for their communities.
Brown was honored at a dinner on the IC campus attended by local business and community leaders. He was recognized for his significant achievements and service to the community and its youth. Brown, who has served as ICSD superintendent since 2011, has invested a lifetime in mentoring young people.
“Living and working in Tompkins County is a great privilege and honor,” said Brown. “To have my love, commitment, and service to this community recognized with such a prestigious honor brings much joy to my heart.”
The annual Tompkins County Distinguished Citizens Award fundraising dinner benefits critical Scouting programs throughout Tompkins County and its surrounding communities.
