Banks Family Award
March 18, 2021
Candace and Tom Banks began seriously considering Westport as a place to raise their family after hearing rave reviews from work colleagues who had recently relocated to the area. Touring the Stepping Stones Preschool in Spring 2008 sealed the deal. Their passion for the town generally, and for the Westport Public Schools in particular, is demonstrated by their leadership in local non-profits, including Greens Farms Church and the PTA, as well as civic engagement in town government. The Banks Family Award furthers STG’s critical mission of reducing student loan obligations after college graduation. Candace and Tom sincerely hope that the award enables the recipient to consider a broader set of options in terms of post-college employment or graduate school than otherwise would be available to him or her.
