During the Jan. 10 nominating meeting, members of the public invited to hear letters regarding those nominated to become candidates for year’s honor.

Started in 1998, Branford Education Hall of Fame “…takes a broad view of the term ‘education,’” said co-founder Thomas Murray. Each year, the volunteer organization recognizes individuals, both living as well as those who have passed on, whose work has enhanced, expanded and facilitated learning for Branford citizens.
