Ferri Middle School was selected by readers of the Providence Journal as the winner (Number 1) in the public school category. Over 500 schools and facilities were nominated. Below is the Journal’s description of the process.
“In January, The Providence Journal held open nominations for the first Readers’ Choice Awards, asking readers to tell them their favorite businesses and organizations in 167 categories. Public schools were one of the categories. Over 11,200 organizations were nominated, and over 105,000 votes were received. The top five nominees in each category then went on to the voting round in February, with over 386,000 more votes cast. The Providence Journal had no hand in selecting nominees or winners. These are the readers’ winners – the ones that readers felt deserved to be a Readers’ Choice. These organizations are the lifeblood of our communities and directly affect our local economy. Winners and finalists will be given a Readers’ Choice a plaque or certificate to hang proudly in their organization. The Journal thanks its readers for the overwhelming response to the first Readers’ Choice Awards, and congratulations to these award-wining Rhode Island organizations.”
Congratulations to Mr. Tsonos, the faculty and staff and students of the Nicholas A. Ferri Middle School on being honored by the Providence Journal readers.
