Students honor adults in ‘Meet our Local Heroes’ event

On Thursday, Sept. 17, local students honored 12 local adults at Pequot Library in an event called “Meet Our Local Heroes from the Community.”

More than 75 people attended the event. The children chose their own people to interview and write about. The public learned the stories of Fairfield’s own community heroes told through the eyes of local students.

The exhibit features 12 different people who have been pillars of our community for decades and together reflect the diverse canvas of talents, interests, and accomplishments of those in our midst. Two children won awards for their displays, Keilan Rosow and Paris Carbone.
