Recognition Breakfast - SCSD Educational Foundation

17th Annual Recognition Breakfast

Each spring, the SCSD Educational Foundation presents its Annual Recognition Breakfast. The Board of Directors selects the award recipients each year based on their contributions and commitments to the children, curriculums, and programs of the Syracuse City School District.

Recipients have included major corporations, business executives, individuals, and community leaders. In addition, the Foundation provides District teachers, administrators and staff to nominate their peers for our Annual Educator of the Year Awards. We encourage corporations, individuals, school administrators, and community leaders to participate as sponsors or purchase tables or seats at the event.


Due to public health concerns and with an abundance of caution, the SCSD Educational Foundation, in coordination with the Syracuse City School District and Superintendent Jaime Alicea, postponed its 17th Annual Recognition Fundraising Breakfast. The breakfast fundraiser was scheduled for Saturday, March 28that the Holiday Inn Liverpool. The event was postponed and will now be held on Saturday, September 26th, as a Virtual Watch Party and TV broadcast on WCNY-TV starting at 9:30 AM 

The Foundation has chosen to move this important event into a virtual environment to ensure the health and safety of breakfast attendees, including teachers, students, community leaders, and sponsor representatives.

We thank all event sponsors and guests, award recipients, hotel management, and school district administrators for their understanding of this decision amid these unsettled and unpredictable circumstances and for everyone’s concerns regarding the prevention and containment of the coronavirus in Central New York.

All sponsor commitments, sponsor benefits, and ticket holders from the March event will be honored for our rescheduled fundraising breakfast in September. 

The Foundation’s Recognition Awards, Educator of the Year Awards, acknowledgements, and the event presentations will remain the same in September. 


If you have any questions or concerns regarding this announcement, please contact Jan Quitzau at 315.391.0259 or

Thank you for your understanding and we wish everyone good health.
