Port Chester Coalition Co-Chairs Receive Leadership Award

PORT CHESTER, N.Y. — The Port Chester Cares Community Coalition has honored outgoing co-chairs Joseph Durney and Joan Grangenois-Thomas with the leadership award for their outstanding service to the coalition.

The PCCCC developed the award “to recognize the importance of strong leaders in the community who work to further the mission of the coalition, to promote positive, safe, productive and healthy lives for all in Port Chester.”

Durney, who is the director of athletics and technology for the Port Chester School District, joined the coalition as chair of the Governance Committee in 2008. He began his term as co-chair in 2009, and has been instrumental in developing programming with the School District that raises the awareness of substance abuse.

Grangenois-Thomas, a communications consultant, joined the coalition in 2009 and has spearheaded the PCCCC’s newsletter and It Takes a Village campaign. As a Port Chester parent, Grangenois-Thomas has also been responsible for increasing parent involvement within the coalition.

“It is because of their hard work and passion that the coalition is as successful as they are today,” said PCCCC Coordinator Jennifer Myers. “Both Joe and Joan have been tremendous leaders in the successes of the coalition and will continue to work toward promoting a healthy, caring and thriving community.”
