The Steven M. Castle Award
2014 Honoree: Kimberly Dreier
In a relatively new tradition, the previous year’s Castle Award winner introduces the newest recipient. The award was established in 1990 in honor of Steven M. Castle, a man “who gave unselfishly of himself and through his deeds inspired others to do the same for Pine Point.” Dionne Butler introduced this year’s Castle Award winner, Kimberly Dreier, and presented her with the Boston Rocker given to each recipient. This year’s presentation marked the 25th time the award has been made to an outstanding volunteer.
Kim threw herself into the life of the School almost as soon as her family arrived in the fall of 2007. She has been a driving force in the fall and spring book fairs, a faithful library volunteer, and a co-president of the Parents’ Association. She currently serves as a trustee. She is the mother of John Rick ’12 (who was on hand to join in the celebration), Julianna Rick ’14, and Jamison Rick ’18.
Chair of the Arts Department Jean Williams, reflecting on this year’s winner of the Castle Award said, “Kim always helped Maria [Iacoi] with costumes during John's time in the musical and has been incredibly helpful with the Lower School Chorus. She has always been supportive of the arts by offering to do whatever she can to help and has altered her schedule to work around ours (i.e. driving here, there, and everywhere). And I have always felt comfortable asking her for help which I think speaks volumes. What an outstanding choice.”
