I have known Lisa for many years. First as a student in my math class at Masuk High School, Monroe CT, second as the babysitter of my children when she was in high school and third as a colleague when she started her science reaching career in the Stratford Public Schools where I was K-12 Mathematics Supervisor and after retirement directed the Tech Prep program for the Stratford high schools. Through all those years I found Lisa to be an outstanding student, a professional in all aspects of her life and career and someone I was proud to know. It is no surprise she has been nominated for this honor. Best Wishes, Lisa.

“It comes as no surprise to me to learn of Dr. Tryon’s nomination in the “Life Changer of the Year” award contest. It may surprise others to learn that she has been a teacher and role model since 1959. Subjects taught include walking, talking, sharing, pet care, music appreciation, driving, volunteerism, and pursuing dreams. My heartfelt thanks to her and to her colleagues for recognizing her with this honor. I’m so proud of you Sister! And Happy Retirement!”

Lisa - Congratulations on your retirement! You have certainly been an amazing force at SHS and I am very blessed that I had an opportunity to share the Honor Societies Induction programs with you as you led the charge with excellent judgement and continuous effort to coordinate a positive and meaningful event for the students and their families. Thank you for your understanding, flexibility, and support for the mentoring program and the participating mentees. Lastly, I will surely miss our conversations about your travel adventures and your fun Halloween festivities. Without a doubt, you will be dearly missed by your students, the faculty members, and me! Godspeed and good luck as you begin the next chapter of your life!
