LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION honoring Lisa Buscaglia upon the occasion of her
designation by the Akron Chamber of Commerce as  the  recipient  of  its
2013 Citizen of the Year Award

WHEREAS,  It  is  incumbent  upon the people of the State of New York to
recognize and acknowledge those within our midst who have  made  signif-
icant contributions to the quality of life therein; and
  WHEREAS,  Attendant to such concern and fully in accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly  proud  to  commend
Lisa Buscaglia upon the occasion of her designation by the Akron Chamber
of Commerce as the recipient of its 2013 Citizen of the Year Award; and
  WHEREAS,  Lisa  Buscaglia  will  be  honored  by  the Akron Chamber of
Commerce at its Annual Banquet on Thursday, May 9, 2013; and
  WHEREAS, Lisa Buscaglia improves the quality of life for her  students
in  the  Akron  Central  School  District  and therefore, ultimately the
community, by tirelessly giving them her time, energy, and love;  educa-
tionally,  she  encourages students to stay in school and perform to the
best of their abilities, and helps them with homework and staying organ-
ized; and
  WHEREAS, Lisa Buscaglia encourages students to talk to their  teachers
when problems arise; her commitment to her students can be seen through-
out  the  day,  whether  it  is  providing students with a safe place to
decompress, food or clothing to those in need, or being a sounding board
for students with major concerns; and
  WHEREAS, Going beyond the call of duty is not uncommon for many educa-
tors, but the degree and the extent of Lisa  Buscaglia's  dedication  is
unmatched;  she  is  a  role  model  for her commitment to the community
through church and sports, and students look to  her  for  guidance  and
appreciate  her  calm  demeanor when they are faced with specific conse-
quences; and
  WHEREAS, Lisa Buscaglia has established several  initiatives,  one  of
which  is  The  Hope  Foundation,  a fund that is used for others in the
community who experience the hardships of life; and
  WHEREAS, A true  asset  to  society,  Lisa  Buscaglia's  distinguished
record merits the recognition and respectful tribute of this Legislative
Body; and
  WHEREAS,  It is the sense of this Legislative Body that when the noble
aims and accomplishments of  individuals  such  as  Lisa  Buscaglia  are
brought  to  our  attention  it  is appropriate to publicly proclaim and
commend them for the edification and emulation of  others;  now,  there-
fore, be it
  RESOLVED,  That  this  Legislative  Body pause in its deliberations to
honor Lisa Buscaglia upon the occasion of her designation by  the  Akron
Chamber  of  Commerce  as  the recipient of its 2013 Citizen of the Year
Award; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Lisa Buscaglia.
