|   City News

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno joined with two-time Oscar Award winner and Springfield’s own Ruth E. Carter as she visits with students at our Rebecca Johnson School. Earlier this year Mayor Sarno joined with Ruth and other officials for the unveiling of a mural in her honor at the school.

Mayor Sarno states, “It is always a pleasure to join with the iconic and beloved Ruth Carter.  All of us here in her hometown of Springfield are so very proud of her and everything she has accomplished. She truly is a very talented and distinguished individual with an impressive résumé and list of accomplishments, awards and recognitions.  The fact that she is taking the time to visit with our students at Rebecca Johnson again is a testament to her love, devotion and caring of our community.”
