NEW HAVEN — More than 400 guests joined the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) on May 21 to honor several community leaders from greater New Haven. The ADL presented the organization’s Torch of Liberty Awards to Dr. Reginald Mayo, superintendent of New Haven schools – presented to him by New Haven Mayor John DeStefano – as well as to Beverly and Dr. John Levy, and the law firm of Wiggin and Dana LLP. The Torch of Liberty Award is presented annually to outstanding citizens and corporations whose extraordinary work has helped to strengthen the Greater New Haven community.
“It was an exceptional evening,” said ADL Connecticut Regional Director Gary Jones. “We had highly deserving honorees who clearly understand the value of ADL’s work. We are proud of the strong relationships we have in the Greater New Haven area. Congratulations once again to Dr. Mayo, the Levys and Wiggin and Dana.”
