This spring, as usual, the Somers Education Foundation is honoring four local individuals for their distinguished service at its annual Gala.

Here's the fourth Patch post about the honorees: meet Chris Ward, head of the Somers Booster Club.

Chris Ward has been a mainstay of the  Somers Booster Club for a decade, serving as secretary for four years, and then heading the organization as president the last three years. Under her leadership, the club has accomplished many initiatives that have benefited the community, including acquiring scoreboards for various fields, establishing the Leave a Legacy brick project at Somers High School, purchasing a golf cart used by the athletic trainer, replacing and adding banners acknowledging achievements all sports, and holding countless fundraisers to help support the seven scholarships the club awards to senior athletes annually. Even though her daughters graduated high school years ago, she remains deeply committed, working alongside vice president and fellow SEF Honoree John Reilly. Ward has also been very involved with the AYSO and FC Somers soccer programs, serving for years as a referee and a referee assignor. She graduated from Pleasantville High School and the University of Hartford and is employed by Mount Kisco Medical Group. She has two daughters who are graduates of Somers High School, Caitlin and Erin.
