Bensenville Park District, executive director cited for collaboration at IASA awards breakfast
The Bensenville Park District and executive director Joseph C. Vallez were recently recognized at the Illinois Association of School Administrators (IASA) DuPage County Annual Recognition & Awards Breakfast at the Bloomingdale Golf Course.
Fenton Community High School District 100 nominated Vallez for recognition of his collaboration. The nomination described him as a “community leader” and “champion of children,” noting his leadership among the Bensenville taxing body community as a master planner.
“I am thankful to Fenton Community High School District 100 and Dr. James Ongtengco for the nomination to be honored by the IASA,” Vallez said. “The recognition is a reflection of the vision of our commissioners and hard work of park district employees to make that vision a reality.”
The honor cited the district’s leadership and participation in community vaccination and booster events, facility and park usage, participation in the Bensenville Carnival and adult education initiatives.
In all, 23 people were recognized by school administrators at the April 13 breakfast for their “positive contribution to the success of our districts.”
